FORMULA
a(0) = 1, a(1) = 5, a(2) = 12; then a(n+1) = a(n) + 8, n > 2.
From Paul Barry, Oct 14 2005: (Start)
G.f.: (1+x)^3/(1-x)^2;
a(n) = 8n - 4 + 4*C(0, n) + C(1, n);
a(n) = C(n+1, n) + 3*C(n, n-1) + 3*C(n-1, n-2) + C(n-2, n-3). (End)
a(n) = A017113(n-1), n > 1. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 12 2008
EXAMPLE
a(6) = 44 = 8 + a(5) = 8 + 36.
