%N Expansion of 2*x^2 / (1-2*x-2*x^2).

%C Number of associative, quasitrivial, and order-preserving binary operations on the n-element set {1,...,n} that have neutral and annihilator elements.

%F a(n) = 2*A002605(n-1), a(0) = 0.

%F a(n) = A028860(n+1), a(0) = 0.

%F From _Colin Barker_, Sep 28 2017: (Start)

%F a(n) = ((1-sqrt(3))^n*(1+sqrt(3)) + (-1+sqrt(3))*(1+sqrt(3))^n) / (2*sqrt(3)) for n>0.

%F a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) for n>2.

%F (End)

%o (PARI) concat(vector(2), Vec(2*x^2 / (1-2*x-2*x^2) + O(x^50))) \\ _Colin Barker_, Sep 28 2017

%Y Cf. A002605, A293005, A293006.

%Y Essentially the same as A028860 and A152035.
