FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n-4) - a(n-8).

a(n+4) - a(n) = 4*A152822(n).

a(2n) + a(2n+1) = |A141124(n)|.

a(4n) + a(4n+1) + a(4n+2) + a(4n+3) = 6*A005408(n) = A017593(n).

G.f.: (x+2*x^2+3*x^3+4*x^4+3*x^5-2*x^6+x^7) / (1-2*x^4+x^8). - Jean-François Alcover, Sep 25 2012

a(n) = 2+(4-(1+(-1)^n)*(1-i^n))*(n-2)/4, where i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Sep 26 2012

a(2n) = 2*|A009531(n)|, a(2n+1) = 2n+1. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2012
