FORMULA

a(n) = (2n+1) * A000217(2n+1).

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+4*a(n-3)-a(n-4); G.f.: (1+14*x+9*x^2)/(x-1)^4. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 19 2010

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..2n-1} (n^2 + n*i - i). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 29 2014

From Amiram Eldar, Jun 28 2020: (Start)

Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = Pi^2/4 - log(4).

Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n/a(n) = 2*G + log(2) - Pi/2, where G is the Catalan constant (A006752). (End)
