COMMENTS
a(n) / a(n-1) converges to sqrt(5) + 1 as n approaches infinity. sqrt(5) + 1 can also be written as Phi^3 - 1, 2 * Phi, Phi^2 + Phi - 1 and (L(n) / F(n)) + 1, where L(n) is the n-th Lucas number and F(n) is the n-th Fibonacci number as n approaches infinity.
Binomial transform is A001076. - Paul Barry, Aug 25 2003

FORMULA
a(n) = s*a(n-1) + r*a(n-2); for n > 1, where a(0) = 0, a(1) = 1, s = 2, r = 4.
From Paul Barry, Aug 25 2003: (Start)
G.f.: x/(1-2*x-4*x^2).
a(n) = sqrt(5)*((1+sqrt(5))^n - (1-sqrt(5))^n)/10.
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} C(n, 2*k+1)5^k . (End)
The signed version 0, 1, -2, ... has a(n)=sqrt(5)((sqrt(5)-1)^n-(-sqrt(5)-1)^n)/10. It is the second inverse binomial transform of A085449. - Paul Barry, Aug 25 2003
a(n) = 2^(n-1)*Fib(n). - Paul Barry, Mar 22 2004
Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = A269991. - Amiram Eldar, Feb 01 2021
a(n) = -(-4)^n*a(-n) for all integer n. - Michael Somos, Mar 07 2021
EXAMPLE
a(4) = 24 because a(3) = 8, a(2) = 2, s = 2, r = 4 and (2 * 8) + (4 * 2) = 24.
G.f. = x + 2*x^2 + 8*x^3 + 24*x^4 + 80*x^5 + 256*x^6 + 832*x^7 + ... - Michael Somos, Mar 07 2021
