FORMULA

a(n) = p^n + q^n, where p = (3 + sqrt(21))/2, q = (3 - sqrt 21)/2.

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2), a(1)=3, a(2)=15. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 19 2008

G.f.: G(0)/x - 2/x, where G(k) = 1 + 1/(1 - x*(7*k-3)/(x*(7*k+4) - 2/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jun 03 2013

EXAMPLE

a(4) = q^4 + q^4 = 207; p^5 + q^5 = 783, where p = (3 + sqrt(21))/2, q = (3 - sqrt(21))/2.
