FORMULA

Let b(n) be A077398(n) then a(n) = b(n)*(b(n)+1)/2.

G.f.: -3*x*(x^2+4*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-16*x+1)*(x^2+16*x+1)). - Colin Barker, Jul 02 2013

Comment from _Vladimir Pletser, Feb 21 2021: (Start)

a(n) = 254 a(n - 2) - a (n - 4) + 18.

a(n) = a(n - 1) + 254 (a(n - 2) - a(n - 3)) - (a (n - 4) - a(n - 5)). (End)

MAPLE
