FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 3*a(n-1) -a(n-2) +2*a(n-3) -a(n-4) +a(n-5) -3*a(n-6) -6*a(n-7) -8*a(n-8) -8*a(n-9) -3*a(n-10).

Empirical g.f.: x*(1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + 2*x^4 - 11*x^5 - 13*x^6 - 6*x^7 - 5*x^8 - 3*x^9) / (1 - 3*x + x^2 - 2*x^3 + x^4 - x^5 + 3*x^6 + 6*x^7 + 8*x^8 + 8*x^9 + 3*x^10). - Colin Barker, May 09 2018
