%F a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>=2. (Proved using the PtoRv program of Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger.) - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Sep 09 2016

%F This was conjectured by _Colin Barker_, Apr 16 2012, and implies the G.f.: (4-x)/(1-4*x+x^2) and the formula a(n) = ((1+sqrt(3))^(2*n+4)-(1-sqrt(3))^(2*n+4))/(2^(n+3)*sqrt(3)).
