FORMULA
G.f.: A(x) = (1 - sqrt(1 - 4*x^2 + 16*x^4)) / (2*x^2*(1-2*x)).
Recurrence: (n+2)*a(n) = 2*(n+2)*a(n-1) + 4*(n-1)*a(n-2) - 8*(n-1)*a(n-3) - 16*(n-4)*a(n-4) + 32*(n-4)*a(n-5). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 19 2013
|a(n)| ~ c * 3^(1/4)*2^(n+2)/(sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)), where c=(sqrt(3)+1)/2 if n=6k+0 or n=6k+1, c=(sqrt(3)-1)/2 if n=6k+2 or n=6k+3 and c=1 if n=6k+4 or n=6k+5. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 19 2013
