Apparently the row n=3 of an array T(n,k) counting walks with k steps on a n X n board starting at an edge position next to a corner, each step to one of the <= 4 adjacent squares:

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..26.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,8).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+3*x)/(1-8*x^2).

a(n) = (1 + (-1)^n)*8^floor((n+1)/2)/2 + 3*(1-(-1)^n)*8^floor(n/2)/2.

a(n) = 2^(3*n/2)*(3*sqrt(2)/8 + 1/2 - (3*sqrt(2)/8 - 1/2)*(-1)^n).

a(2n+1) = 2*a(2n) + 2*a(2n-1) + 2*a(2n-2).

a(2n) = 2*a(2n-1) + 2*a(2n-2).

a(n+3) = a(n+2)*a(n+1)/a(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 04 2011
