FORMULA

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - 12*a(n-3) + 4*a(n-4) + 12*a(n-5) - 8*a(n-6), n>8.

From David Bevan, Jul 21 2006: (Start)

a(2*m) = 121*2^(2*m-4) - 4*m*2^m - 25*2^(m-2) - 2, m > 1.

a(2*m+1) = 121*2^(2*m-3) - 31*m*2^(m-2) - 23*2^(m-1) - 2, m > 0.

a(n) = 8*a(n-2) - 20*a(n-4) + 16*a(n-6) + 6, n > 8. (End)

O.g.f.: (2*x^7-8*x^6+12*x^5-2*x^4-2*x^3-6*x^2+5*x+1)*x/((2*x-1)*(-1+2*x^2)^2*(-1+x)). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 05 2007
