FORMULA
a(n) = 5*n - a(n-1) - 4, with n>1, a(1)=3.
From R. J. Mathar, Nov 25 2009: (Start)
a(n) = A168209(n-1), n>1.
a(n) = (10*n + 5*(-1)^(n+1) - 3)/4.
G.f.: x*(3 + 2*x^2)/((1+x)*(x-1)^2). (End)
a(n) = a(n-1) +a(n-2) -a(n-3). - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 16 2013
E.g.f.: (1/4)*(-5 + 8*exp(x) + (10*x - 3)*exp(2*x))*exp(-x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 17 2016
