FORMULA

For n>4, a(2n)+2a(2n-1)+a(2n-2)+a(2n-3)=0.

Let c=4.181943336... be the largest positive root of 1-x-4*x^2+x^3. Then a(2n) is asymptotic to a*c^n, where a=-0.0493553440330328..., while a(2n+1) is asymptotic to b*c^n, where b= 0.11422175750398... (-a/b is the smallest root (in absolute value) of 3-12*x+13*x^2-3*x^3.)

limit n ->infinity a(2n+1)/a(2n)=-2.3142733525986128..., the largest root (in absolute value) of 3+13*x+12*x^2+3*x^3; limit n ->infinity a(2n)/a(2n-1)=-1.8070222... the largest root (in absolute value) of -3+3*x+8*x^2+3*x^3.

Empirical G.f.: x*(2*x^8-2*x^7-4*x^5-3*x^4-4*x^3-3*x^2+x+1) / (x^6-x^4-4*x^2+1). [Colin Barker, Dec 01 2012]
