COMMENTS

For a guide to related sequences, see A211422.

Also, a(n) is the number of ordered pairs (w,x) with both terms in {-n,...,0,...,n} and w+2x divisible by 4. If (w,x) is such a pair it is easy to see that (-w,x), (-w,-x), and (w,-x) also are such pairs. The number of pairs with both w and x positive is given by A211521(n). If w=0, x must be even, and if x=0, w must be divisible by 4. This means that a(n) = 4*A211521(n) + 2*floor(n/2) + 2*floor(n/4) + 1. Since the sequences A211521(n), floor(n/2), floor(n/4), and the constant sequence all satisfy the recurrence conjectured in the formula section, a(n) must also satisfy the recurrence, so this proves the conjecture. - Pontus von Brömssen, Jan 19 2020

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, May 15 2017: (Start)

G.f.: (1 + 5*x^2 + 4*x^3 + 5*x^4 + x^6) / ((1 - x)^3*(1 + x)^2*(1 + x^2)).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) - a(n-6) + a(n-7) for n>6.

(End)

MATHEMATICA

t[n_] := t[n] = Flatten[Table[w + 2 x + 4 y, {w, -n, n}, {x, -n, n}, {y, -n, n}]]

c[n_] := Count[t[n], 0]

t = Table[c[n], {n, 0, 70}]  (* A211433 *)

(t - 1)/2 (* integers *)
