 OFFSET 0,6 COMMENTS This sequence is an example of a "symmetric" quartic recurrence and has some expected divisibility properties. a(n-3) counts partially ordered partitions of (n-3) into parts 1,2,3 where only the order of the adjacent 1's and 3's are unimportant (see example). - David Neil McGrath, Jul 25 2015 LINKS Michael De Vlieger, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..4239 Jarib R. Acosta, Yadira Caicedo, Juan P. Poveda, José L. Ramírez, Mark Shattuck, Some New Restricted n-Color Composition Functions, J. Int. Seq., Vol. 22 (2019), Article 19.6.4. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,1,1,-1). FORMULA G.f.: x^3/(x^4 - x^3 - x^2 - x + 1). EXAMPLE Partially ordered partitions of (n-3) into parts 1,2,3 where only the order of adjacent 1's and 3's are unimportant. E.g., a(n-3)=a(6)=19.
