R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..69

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-3) + 4*a(n-4).

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 18 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 2*x*(4 - 3*x - 11*x^2 + 6*x^3) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)*(1 - 2*x^2)).

a(n) = 9*2^(n/2) + 2^(n+1) - 8 for n even.

a(n) = 2*(2^n + 3*2^((n+1)/2) - 4) for n odd.

(End)

EXAMPLE
