FORMULA

a(n) = sum(A002524(k), k=0..n-1). - Sean A. Irvine, Mar 10 2014

MAPLE

A002525:=z/(1-2*z-2*z**3+z**5); # conjectured by Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation

MATHEMATICA

a[n_ /; n <= 2] := n; a[3]=4; a[4]=10; a[n_] := a[n] = 2*a[n-1] + 2*a[n-3] - a[n-5]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 29}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Mar 12 2014 *)

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {z = x + x*O(x^n); gf = z/(1-2*z-2*z^3+z^5); polcoeff(gf, n); } \\ Michel Marcus, Mar 11 2014
