FORMULA
a(n) = (1/5)*Sum_{r=1..9} sin(r*Pi/10)*sin(2*r*Pi/5)*(2*cos(r*Pi/10))^(2*n+1).
a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 21*a(n-2) + 20*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4).
G.f.: x*(-1+x)*(-1+3*x)/(1-8*x+21*x^2-20*x^3+5*x^4).
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(2*n,n+k)*(k|20), where (k|20) represents the Kronecker symbol. - Greg Dresden, Oct 09 2022
MAPLE
