COMMENTS

Also, the number of (w,x,y,z) with all terms in {1,...,n} and |x-y|>|y-z|. a(n)+A212682(n)=n^4. Every term is even.

FORMULA

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

G.f.: (4*x^2 + 12*x^3 + 20*x^4 + 10*x^5 + 2*x^6)/(1 - 3*x + x^2 + 5*x^3 - 5*x^4 - x^5 + 3*x^6 - x^7).
