FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 2*a(n-1) +5*a(n-3) +2*a(n-4) +6*a(n-5) +5*a(n-6) -2*a(n-8) -a(n-9) for n>12.

Empirical g.f.: x*(19 + 46*x - 53*x^2 - 83*x^3 - 252*x^4 - 315*x^5 - 423*x^6 - 476*x^7 - 163*x^8 + 111*x^9 + 122*x^10 + 35*x^11) / ((1 - 2*x - 2*x^2 - x^3)*(1 + 2*x^2 + 2*x^4 - x^6)). - Colin Barker, Feb 18 2018
