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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = a(n-1) + 4*a(n-2) for n>4.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 03 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 9*x*(1 + 8*x + x^2 - 14*x^3) / (1 - x - 4*x^2).

a(n) = (9*2^(-6-n)*((1-sqrt(17))^n*(-109+27*sqrt(17)) + (1+sqrt(17))^n*(109+27*sqrt(17)))) / sqrt(17) for n>2.

(End)
