FORMULA

a(2n+1)=a(2n)+a(2n-1); a(2n)=a(2n-1)+2*a(2n-2); same recurrence (mod parity) as A001882) - Len Smiley, Feb 05 2001.

a(n)=sum{k=0..n, sum{j=0..n, C(floor(n/2), n-j)*C(floor(j/2), j-k)}} - Paul Barry, Feb 14 2005

a(n)=4*a(n-2)-2*a(n-4). G.f.: -x*(1+x)*(2*x^2-2*x-1)/(1-4*x^2+2*x^4). a(2n+1)=A007070(n). a(2n)=A007052(n). [From R. J. Mathar, Aug 17 2009]

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) * A000034(n-1). [Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 21 2012]

a(n)=(1-1/2*(-1)^n)*((2-sqrt(2))^(1/4*(2*n+(-1)^n-1))+(2+sqrt(2))^(1/4*(2*n+(-1)^n-1)))+(1/4*sqrt(2)*(-1)^n-3/4*sqrt(2))*((2-sqrt(2))^(1/4*(2*n+(-1)^n-1))-(2+sqrt(2))^(1/4*(2*n+(-1)^n-1))). - Paolo P. Lava, Feb 13 2012
