COMMENTS
In reference to the program code, "ibasek" corresponds to the floretion 'ik'. Sequences in this same batch are "kbase" = A005665 (Tower of Hanoi with cyclic moves only.) and "ibase" = A077846.

FORMULA
a(n) = A028860(n+2)-1.
G.f.: (-1+4*x)/((x-1)*(2*x^2+2*x-1)).
From Colin Barker, Apr 29 2019: (Start)
a(n) = (-1 + (-(1-sqrt(3))^n + (1+sqrt(3))^n)/sqrt(3)).
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-3) for n>2.
(End)
