COMMENTS

The sequence appears on the main diagonal of the array defined by A123167 in the first row and successive differences in followup rows:

2, 3, 10, 7, 18, 11, 26, 15, 34, 19, ... A123167

1, 7, -3, 11, -7, 15, -11, 19, -15, 23, ... first diff

6, -10, 14, -18, 22 -26, 30, -34, 38, ... second diff

-16, 24, -32, 40, -48, 56, -64, 72, -80, ... third diff

FORMULA

a(n) mod 9 = A010710(n-1), n > 2.

a(2n) + a(2n+1) = 9, 54, 360, 2016, ...

a(n) - 2*a(n-1) = 12*A131577(n-2), n > 1.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2), n > 3.

G.f.: (-6*x^2+12*x^3+2-x)/(1-2*x)^2.
