COMMENTS
The entries are the coefficients in a family of Jacobsthal recurrences: a(n)=k*a(n-1)+(3-k)*a(n-2)+(2-2k)*a(n-3).
Examples for k=0 are in A001045 and A113954. Examples for k=1 are A001045, A078008.
Examples for k=2 are A000975, A087288, A084639, A000012 and A001045.
Examples for k=3 are A045883, A059570. Examples for k=4 are A094705 and A015518.

FORMULA
From R. J. Mathar, Feb 25 2009: (Start)
a(n) = 2*a(n-3) - a(n-6).
G.f.: x*(3+2*x+x^2-4*x^3-4*x^4)/((x-1)^2*(1+x+x^2)^2). (End)
EXAMPLE
The triples (k,3-k,2-2k) are (0,3,2), (1,2,0), (2,1,-2), (3,0,-4),...
