Apparently the same as A001045 after the first term. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 27 2008 [This conjecture is true. - Peter Luschny, Nov 28 2019]

FORMULA

From Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 22 2013 and Sep 09 2013: (Start)

G.f.: 1 + A(x) where A(x) is the g.f. of A001045.

G.f.: 1 + Q(0)/3, where Q(k)= 1 - 1/(4^k - 2*x*16^k/(2*x*4^k - 1/(1 + 1/(2*4^k - 8*x*16^k/(4*x*4^k + 1/Q(k+1)))))); (continued fraction).

G.f.: 1+ Q(0)*x/2 , where Q(k) = 1 + 1/(1 - x*(2*k+1 + 2*x)/( x*(2*k+2 + 2*x) + 1/Q(k+1) )); (continued fraction). (End)

From Colin Barker, Nov 28 2019: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) for n>2.

a(n) = ((-1)^(1 + n) + 2^n)/ 3 for n>0. (End)

E.g.f.: (3 - exp(-x) + exp(2*x))/3. - Stefano Spezia, Feb 13 2020
