COMMENTS
The ratio a(n)/(2*j(n)) tends to sqrt(2) as n increases.
After 3, first differences of A301383. - Bruno Berselli, Mar 22 2018
For n > 0, a(n+1) is the n-th almost Lucas-balancing number of first type (see Tekcan and Erdem). - Stefano Spezia, Nov 25 2022

FORMULA
a(1)=3, a(2)=9 then a(n) = 6*a(n-1)-a(n-2).
G.f.: 3*x*(1 - 3*x)/(1 - 6*x + x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 17 2008
a(n) = (3/2)*A003499(n-1).
a(n) = 3*((3-2*sqrt(2))^(n-1) + (3+2*sqrt(2))^(n-1))/2. - Colin Barker, Oct 13 2015
E.g.f.: 3*exp(3*x)*(3*cosh(2*sqrt(2)*x) - 2*sqrt(2)*sinh(2*sqrt(2)*x)) - 9. - Stefano Spezia, Nov 25 2022
