FORMULA

Empirical: a(n)=2*a(n-1)-a(n-3)-2*a(n-5)+2*a(n-6)+a(n-8)-2*a(n-10)+a(n-11) = 269/1728 +235*n^2/144 +161*n/96 +23*n^4/288 +83*n^3/144 +(-1)^n*(1/64-3*n/32) -2*(-1)^n*A130815(n+2)/27 +A057077(n+1)/8.

Empirical: G.f. -2*x*(2+4*x+5*x^2+5*x^3+4*x^4+x^5+2*x^6) / ( (x^2+1)*(1+x+x^2)*(1+x)^2*(x-1)^5 ). - R. J. Mathar, Mar 21 2011

EXAMPLE

4*x + 16*x^2 + 42*x^3 + 90*x^4 + 172*x^5 + 296*x^6 + 482*x^7 + 740*x^8 + ...
