COMMENTS

1. Begin with a square tile.

2. Place square tiles on each edge to form a diamond shape.

3. Count the tiles: a(0) = 5.

4. Add tiles to fill the enclosing square.

5. Go to step 2.

FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Apr 20 2009: (Start)

a(n) = 7*a(n-1) - 14*a(n-2) + 8*a(n-3).

G.f.: -(5 - 22*x + 20*x^2)/((x - 1)*(2*x - 1)*(4*x - 1)).

(End)

E.g.f.: e^x + 2*(e^(2*x) + e^(4*x)). - Iain Fox, Dec 30 2017
