FORMULA
a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3), n >= 3.
a(n+1) - a(n) = A048573(n-1).
a(n) = 2*A000975(n+1) - 3*A000975(n-1).
a(n) - a(n-2) = 5*2^n.
a(n+1) - 2*a(n) = ((-1)^n-1)/2 = -A000035(n).
G.f.: ( 2-3*x^2 ) / ( (x-1)*(2*x-1)*(1+x) ). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 07 2011
a(n) = ceiling( (5/3)*(2^n) ). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 28 2013
