COMMENTS

The initial terms coincide with those of A003945, although the two sequences are eventually different.

Computed with MAGMA using commands similar to those used to compute A154638.

FORMULA

G.f.: (t^4 + t^3 + t^2 + t + 1)/(t^4 - 2*t^3 + t^2 - 2*t + 1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+2*a(n-3)-a(n-4). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, May 10 2021
