FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) + 2 with n>0, a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 30 2010

From Colin Barker, May 16 2013: (Start)

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2).

G.f.: 2*x/((1-x)*(1-5*x)). (End)

a(n) = 2 * A003463(n). - Joerg Arndt, Aug 03 2019

EXAMPLE

a(2)=12: there are 12 compositions of odd numbers into 2 parts <5:

1: (0,1),(1,0);

3: (0,3),(3,0),(1,2),(2,1);

5: (1,4),(4,1),(2,3),(3,2);

7: (3,4),(4,3). - Adi Dani, Jun 11 2011
