FORMULA
a(n; t, s) = a(n-1; t, s) + a(n-1; t-1, s-(t-1)) + a(n-1; t-2, s-2(t-2)) + a(n-1; t-3, s-3(t-3)) where t is the trace and s is the subtrace. Note that all operations involving operands t or s are carried out over GF(4).
G.f.: -(2*q-3)*q^3/[(1-2q)(1-4q)(1+4q^2)]. - Lawrence Sze, Oct 24 2004
a(n) = -2^(n-3) +( (-2i)^n + (2i)^n +4^n )/16 with i=sqrt(-1). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 18 2011
