FORMULA
a(n) ~ 1/9 * c^(((1+sqrt(5))/2)^n), where c = 1.6403763522562240514693138664331346215549... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 06 2015
a(n) = A064098(n)^2. - Seiichi Manyama, Aug 18 2016
From Seiichi Manyama, Aug 26 2016: (Start)
a(n) = 9*a(n-1)*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3).
a(n)*a(n-1)*a(n-2) = ((a(n) + a(n-1) + a(n-2))/3)^2. (End)
