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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 4*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - 25*a(n-3) + 16*a(n-4) + 46*a(n-5) - 48*a(n-6) - 26*a(n-7) + 36*a(n-8) + 4*a(n-9) - 8*a(n-10).

Empirical g.f.: 2*x*(19 - 34*x - 123*x^2 + 218*x^3 + 244*x^4 - 426*x^5 - 167*x^6 + 284*x^7 + 36*x^8 - 60*x^9) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)*(1 - x - x^2)*(1 - 2*x^2)*(1 - 4*x^2 + 2*x^4)). - Colin Barker, Jul 18 2018
