%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A187854/b187854.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..50</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 706880*n^2 - 5180252*n + 9274644 for n>9.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Apr 26 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: 4*x^3*(4008 + 61170*x + 142484*x^2 + 117405*x^3 + 46297*x^4 + 708*x^5 - 10396*x^6 - 6286*x^7 - 1750*x^8 - 200*x^9) / (1 - x)^3.

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>12.
