COMMENTS

The sequence is present as a family of single interleaved sequence of which there are many which are separated or factored out to give individual sequences. The larger sequence produces two smaller interleaved sequences where one of them has the formulas above and the other interleaved sequence has the formulas (18n^2-24n+1) and (18n^2-6n+5). The latter interleaved sequence is A214493. There are three sequences in this family.

FORMULA

From Bruno Berselli, Oct 01 2012: (Start)

G.f.: 9*(1-x-3*x^2+5*x^3)/((1+x)*(1-x)^3).

a(n) = (9/4)*(2*n*(n-4)-3*(-1)^n+7).

a(n) = 9*A178218(n-3) with A178218(-3)=1, A178218(-2)=1, A178218(-1)=-1, A178218(0)=1. (End)

a(0)=9, a(1)=9, a(2)=-9, a(3)=9, a(n)=2*a(n-1)-2*a(n-3)+a(n-4). - Harvey P. Dale, Apr 26 2014
