COMMENTS
Old name was: A144863, read as binary numbers, converted to base 10.
All numbers in this sequence for n>1 are congruent to 5 mod 16. - Artur Jasinski, Sep 25 2008
From Omar E. Pol, Sep 10 2011: (Start)
It appears that this is a bisection of A002450.
It appears that this is a bisection of A084241.
It appears that this is a bisection of A153497.
It appears that this is a bisection of A088556, if n>=2.
(End)
All of the above is trivially true. - Joerg Arndt, Aug 19 2014
The aerated sequence (b(n))n>=1 = [1, 0, 21, 0, 341, 0, 5461, 0, 87381, ...] is a fourth-order linear divisibility sequence; that is, a(n) divides a(m) whenever n divides m. It is the case P1 = 0, P2 = -9, Q = -4 of the 3-parameter family of 4th-order linear divisibility sequences found by Williams and Guy. - Peter Bala, Aug 26 2022

FORMULA
a(n) = 16^n/12 - 1/3; a(n) = 16*a(n-1) + 5, a(1)=1. - Artur Jasinski, Sep 25 2008
G.f.: x*(1+4*x) / ( (16*x-1)*(x-1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 06 2011
a(n)=b such that Integral_{x=-Pi/2..Pi/2} (-1)^(n+1)*2^(2*n-3)*(cos((2*n-1)*x))/(5/4+sin(x)) dx = c+b*log(3). - Francesco Daddi, Aug 02 2011
a(n) = (2^(4*n-2)-1)/3. - Klaus Purath, Jan 31 2021
From Jianing Song, Aug 30 2022: (Start)
a(n) = A001045(4*n-2).
a(n+1) - a(n) = 10*A013776(n-1) = 20*A001025(n-1) for n >= 1.
a(n) = 10*A098704(n) + 1 = 20*A131865(n-2) + 1 for n >= 2. (End)
E.g.f.: (exp(16*x) - 4*exp(x) + 3)/12. - Stefano Spezia, Apr 18 2024
