%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A202965/b202965.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 2*a(n-1) -a(n-3) -2*a(n-5) +2*a(n-6) +a(n-8) -2*a(n-10) +a(n-11).

%F Empirical g.f.: 2*x*(1 + 39*x + 125*x^2 + 368*x^3 + 503*x^4 + 666*x^5 + 499*x^6 + 384*x^7 + 120*x^8 + 55*x^9) / ((1 - x)^5*(1 + x)^2*(1 + x^2)*(1 + x + x^2)). - _Colin Barker_, Jun 03 2018
