FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Aug 20 2017: (Start)

Empirical recurrence: a(n) = a(n-1) +2*a(n-2) -a(n-3) +3*a(n-4) -a(n-5) -7*a(n-6) +a(n-7) +a(n-10).

Empirical g.f.: 2*x*(21 + 18*x - 8*x^2 + 7*x^3 - 50*x^4 - 71*x^5 + 15*x^6 + 4*x^7 + 7*x^8 + 12*x^9) / (1 - x - 2*x^2 + x^3 - 3*x^4 + x^5 + 7*x^6 - x^7 - x^10).

(End)
