Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

FORMULA

E.g.f.: exp(2*x)*cosh(sqrt(6)*x).

a(n) = ((2+sqrt(6))^n+(2-sqrt(6))^n)/2. - Paul Barry, May 13 2003

a(n) = sum(k=0..floor(n/2), C(n,2k)*2^(n-k)*3^k). - Paul Barry, Jan 15 2007

G.f.: (1-2x)/(1-4*x-2*x^2). [Philippe Deléham, Sep 07 2009]

a(n) = A090017(n+1)-2*A090017(n). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 05 2011

a(n) = sum(k=0..n, A201730(n,k)*5^k). - Philippe Deléham, Dec 06 2011

G.f.: G(0)/2, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(3*k-2)/(x*(3*k+1) - 1/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 27 2013
