R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

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

Empirical g.f.: 2*x*(33 + 20*x - 40*x^2 - 48*x^3 + 4*x^4 + 59*x^5 - 2*x^6 - 31*x^7 + 4*x^8) / ((1 - x)*(1 + x)*(1 - 2*x - 2*x^2 - x^3 + 3*x^4 + x^5 - 2*x^6)). - Colin Barker, Jun 01 2018
