FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+(6^(n-1)-1)*a(n-2), (Goldman + Rota, 1969). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 21 2013

a(n) ~ c * 6^(n^2/4), where c = EllipticTheta[3,0,1/6]/QPochhammer[1/6,1/6] = 1.656816524577... if n is even and c = EllipticTheta[2,0,1/6]/QPochhammer[1/6,1/6] = 1.630173070572... if n is odd. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 21 2013

MATHEMATICA

Flatten[{1, RecurrenceTable[{a[n]==2*a[n-1]+(6^(n-1)-1)*a[n-2], a[0]==1, a[1]==2}, a, {n, 1, 15}]}] (* Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 21 2013 *)

Table[Sum[QBinomial[n, k, 6], {k, 0, n}], {n, 0, 20}] (* Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 13 2016 *)

PROG
