Table of n, a(n) for n=1..36.

FORMULA

a(1) = a(2) = 1, a(3) = 2, a(5*k+2) = a(5*k+1) + a(5*k-1), a(5*k+3) = a(5*k+2) + a(5*k+1), a(5*k+b) = a(5*k+b-1) + a(5*k+b-2) + a(5*k+b-3) for b=-1,0,1 [From Domoryad]. - Sean A. Irvine, Apr 21 2016

From Chai Wah Wu, Dec 20 2019: (Start)

a(n) = 15*a(n-5) + 2*a(n-10) for n > 10.

G.f.: x*(-2*x^9 - 2*x^6 + 2*x^5 - 7*x^4 - 4*x^3 - 2*x^2 - x - 1)/(2*x^10 + 15*x^5 - 1). (End)
