%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A187590/b187590.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..50</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 2516*n^2 - 15980*n + 24408 for n>5.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Apr 24 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: 2*x^3*(39 + 737*x + 1388*x^2 + 576*x^3 - 95*x^4 - 129*x^5) / (1 - x)^3.

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>8.
