%F a(n) = (1/12)*((7-4*sqrt(3))*(2-sqrt(3))^n+(7+4*sqrt(3))*(2+sqrt(3))^n-3+(-1)^n). Recurrence: a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-4*a(n-3)+a(n-4).

%F a(n)=sum{k=0..floor(n/2), U(n-2k, 2)} - _Paul Barry_, Nov 15 2003

%F The g.f. can also be written as 1/(1-4*x+4*x^3-x^4), which relates this sequence to the family of sequences described in A225682.
