 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The second differences are -1, 2, 0, 4, 4, 12, 20, 44, ... (-1)^(n+1)*A084247(n), essentially A097073, which are listed here with -1 <=> 2, 0 <=> 4 etc. swapped in pairs. LINKS FORMULA a(n) = 4*A092808(n-2), n>1. a(n+1) - 2a(n) = (-1)^n*A140504(n). O.g.f.: (2+x-5x^2)/[(1+x)(1-2x)(1+2x)]. - R. J.
