FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n+1} Sum_{i=1..k-1} Sum_{j=0..floor((n-i)/4)} (-1)^j*binomial(k, i)*binomial(i, j)*binomial(n-i, k-i-1)*binomial(n-4*j-1, i-1)/k for n > 0. - Andrew Howroyd, Feb 24 2020

PROG

(PARI) a(n)={my(m=4); if(n<1, n==0, sum(k=1, n+1, sum(i=1, k-1, sum(j=0, (n-i)\m, (-1)^j*binomial(k, i)*binomial(i, j)*binomial(n-i, k-i-1)*binomial(n-m*j-1, i-1)))/k))} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Feb 24 2020
