COMMENTS

a(n) is also the permanent of the n-by-n matrix that has ones on its diagonal, ones on its three superdiagonals (with the exception of zeroes in the (1,3) and (1,4)-entries), ones on its three subdiagonals (with the exception of zeroes in the (3,1) and (4,1)-entries), and is zero elsewhere.

This is row 13 of Klove's Table 3.

FORMULA

Contribution from Nathaniel Johnston, Apr 11 2011 (Start):

a(n) = A188497(n+1) - A188494(n).

a(n) = A002526(n-1) + A002526(n-2).

(End)

G.f.: -(x^10+2*x^9+x^8 -2*x^6-2*x^5-2*x^4 -3*x^3+x) / (x^14+2*x^13+2*x^11 +4*x^10-2*x^9-10*x^8 -16*x^7-2*x^6+8*x^5 +10*x^4+2*x^2+2*x-1).
