FORMULA

For n > 0: a(n) = A186421(n) + A186421(n+2).

a(n) = n*2 / gcd(n, 2).

a(n) = -(n*((-1)^n-3))/2. - Stephen Crowley, Feb 11 2007

From R. J. Mathar, Aug 20 2008: (Start)

a(n) = A066043(n), n > 1.

a(n) = 2*A026741(n).

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

a(n) = n*A000034(n). - Paul Curtz, Mar 25 2011

E.g.f.: x*(2*cosh(x) + sinh(x)). - Stefano Spezia, May 09 2021
