COMMENTS
Arises in Routh's theorem.
With offset 0, multiplicative with a(3^e) = 3^(2e-1), a(p^e) = p^(2e) otherwise. - David W. Wilson, Jun 12 2005, corrected by Robert Israel, Apr 28 2017

FORMULA
G.f.: x^2*(1 + 4*x + 3*x^2 + 13*x^3 + 13*x^4 + 3*x^5 + 4*x^6 + x^7)/(1 - x^3)^3.
a(n) = (n-1)^2/3 if n-1 == 0 (mod 3), (n-1)^2 otherwise. - David W. Wilson, Jun 12 2005, corrected by Robert Israel, Apr 28 2017
From Amiram Eldar, Aug 11 2022: (Start)
a(n) = numerator((n-1)^2/3).
Sum_{n>=2} 1/a(n) = 11*Pi^2/54. (End)
From Amiram Eldar, Dec 30 2022: (Start)
With offset 0, Dirichlet g.f.: zeta(s-2)*(1-6/3^s).
Sum_{k=1..n} a(k) ~ 7*n^3/27. (End)
