FORMULA

a(n) = c(0)c(n-1) + c(1)c(n-2) + c(2)c(n-3) + ... + c(n-1)c(0), where c(i) is given by sequence A005251; generating function = (x(1-x)^2)/(1-2x+x^2-x^3)^2

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..floor((n+2)/3)} k*binomial(n-k+1, 2*k-1). - Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 10 2004

EXAMPLE

a(4)=6 since the compositions of 4 that do not contain a 2 are 1+1+1+1, 1+3, 3+1 and 4, for a total of 6 1's. Also there are 6 occurrences of 5 in the compositions of 8 (= 4+5-1): 1+1+1+5, 1+1+5+1, 1+5+1+1, 5+1+1+1, 5+3 and 3+5 (only compositions without 2's that contain a 5 are listed).
