%N Eight white kings and one red king on a 3 X 3 chessboard. G.f.: 1/(1-3*x-5*x^2+4*x^3).

%C The a(n) represent the number of n-move routes of a fairy chess piece starting in a given corner square (m = 1, 3, 7 or 9) on a 3 X 3 chessboard. This fairy chess piece behaves like a king on the eight side and corner squares but on the central square the king goes crazy and turns into a red king, see A179596.

%C The sequence above corresponds to 4 red king vectors, i.e. A[5] vectors, with decimal [binary] values 85 [0,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1], 277 [1,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,1], 337 [1,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,1] and 340 [1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,0].

%C Convolution of (-4)^n and F(n+1) with F = A000045.

%F G.f.: = 1/((x^2-x-1)*(4*x-1)).

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1)+5*a(n-2)-4*a(n-3) with a(1)=1, a(2)=3 and a(3)=14.

%F a(n) = (1/95)*(5*2^(2*n+4)-(11-2*phi)*phi^(-n-1)-(9+2*phi)*(1-phi)^(-n-1)) with phi = (1+sqrt(5))/2, with A001622 = phi.

%F a(n) = (-1)^n*sum((-4)^m*F(n+1-m),m=0..n).
