FORMULA

f(k+6) = 6*f(k+4)-10*f(k+2)+4*f(k).

Empirical G.f.: 2*x^12*(6+11*x-4*x^2-7*x^3)/(1-4*x^2+2*x^4). [Colin Barker, May 07 2012]

MAPLE

NUM := proc(k :: integer) local i, j, n, Fun, Identity, v, A; n:=12; # <- DIMENSION Fun:=(i, j)->piecewise(((j=i+1) or (i+j=n+1)), 1, 0); Identity:=(i, j)->piecewise(i=j, 1, 0); v:=matrix(1, n, 1); A:=piecewise(k>1, (matrix(n, n, Fun))^(k-1), k=1, matrix(n, n, Identity)); return(evalm(v&*A&*transpose(v))[1, 1]); end:

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := f[k] = If[k <= 17, {12, 22, 40, 74, 136, 252}[[k-11]], 6 f[k-2] - 10 f[k-4] + 4 f[k-6]];
