FORMULA

G.f.: x / ((1-6*x)*(1-8*x)*(1-12*x)*(1-24*x)).

a(n) = (1/6)*(-6^n + 3*8^n - 3*12^n + 24^n).

MAPLE

A001241:=1/(6*z-1)/(8*z-1)/(12*z-1)/(24*z-1); [Conjectured by Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation.]

CROSSREFS

Equals 2^(n-1) * A028037(n-1).

Right-hand column 3 in triangle A008969.

a(n) = A112492(n+2, 4).
