FORMULA

a(n+1) = 4*n^2+2*n+1. - Paul Barry, Apr 02 2003

a(n) = 4*n^2-6*n+3-3*0^n (with leading zero). - Paul Barry, Jun 11 2003

Binomial transform of [1, 6, 8, 0, 0, 0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Dec 28 2007

a(n) = 8*n+a(n-1)-10 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 07 2010

From Colin Barker, Mar 23 2012: (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3).

G.f.: x*(1+x)*(1+3*x)/(1-x)^3. (End)

a(n) = A000384(n) + A000384(n-1). - Bruce J. Nicholson, May 07 2017

E.g.f.: -3 + (3 - 2*x + 4*x^2)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 04 2019
