FORMULA

a(n) = F(n/2+2)^(n+2)*prod(j=1,n/2-1,F(j+2)^4) if n is even, F((n+1)/2+2)^((n+1)/2)*F((n-1)/2+2)^((n-1)/2)*prod(j=1,(n-1)/2,F(j+2)^4) if n is odd, where F(n) = A000045(n) is the n-th Fibonacci number.

a(n) is asymptotic to C^4*((1+sqrt(5))/2)^((n+2)*(n+4))/5^(3/2*(n+2)), where C=1.226742010720353244... is Fibonacci Factorial Constant, see A062073.
