FORMULA
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(n+k)*C(n,k)*k!*4^k. - Ralf Stephan, May 22 2004
Recurrence: a(n) = (4*n-1)*a(n-1) + 4*(n-1)*a(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 16 2013
a(n) ~ n! * exp(-1/4)*4^n. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 16 2013
E.g.f. A(x) = exp(-x)/(1-4x) satisfies (1-4x)A' - (3+4x)A = 0. - Gheorghe Coserea, Aug 06 2015
a(n) = exp(-1/4)*4^n*Gamma(n+1,-1/4), where Gamma is the incomplete Gamma function. - Robert Israel, Aug 07 2015
a(0) = 1; a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} binomial(n,k) * (4*k - 1) * a(n-k). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jan 17 2020
MAPLE
f:= gfun:-rectoproc({a(n) = (4*n-1)*a(n-1) + 4*(n-1)*a(n-2), a(0)=1, a(1)=3}, a(n), remember):
