COMMENTS
This sequence is part of a family of sequences, namely R(n,k), the number of ks in palindromic compositions of n. See also A057711, A001792, A078836, A079861, A079862. General formula: R(n,k)=2^(floor(n/2) - k) * (2 + floor(n/2) - k) if n and k have different parity and R(n,k)=2^(floor(n/2) - k) * (2 + floor(n/2) - k + 2^(floor((k+1)/2 - 1)) otherwise, for n >= 2k.

FORMULA
a(n) = (n+22)*2^(n-12).
From Colin Barker, Sep 29 2015: (Start)
a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) for n>13.
G.f.: -2*x^12*(33*x-17) / (2*x-1)^2.
(End)
EXAMPLE
a(12) = 34 since the palindromic compositions of 23 that contain a 11 are 11+1+11 and the 32 compositions of the form c+11+(reverse of c), where c represents a composition of 6.
