FORMULA

G.f.: -x^2*(1 + 5*x + 2*x^2)/((1 + x)^2*(x - 1)^3). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 06 2012

a(n) = n*(4*n - 5 - (-1)^n)/4. - Luce ETIENNE, Oct 04 2014

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 11 2016: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>4.

a(n) = Sum_{i=floor((n-1)/2)..floor(3*(n-1)/2)} i. (End)

E.g.f.: x^2*cosh(x) - x*(1 - 2*x)*sinh(x)/2. - Franck Maminirina Ramaharo, Nov 08 2018
