COMMENTS

The sequence (the third in the family) is present as a family of single interleaved sequence of  which are separated or factored out of the larger sequence to give individual sequences. The larger sequence produces four smaller interleaved sequences where one of them  has the formula above and a second interleaved sequences having the formulas (16n^2-24n+1) and (16n^2-6n+5). This interleaved sequence is A214393. The fourth interleaved sequence in the group has the formulas (16n^2-8n-7) and (16n^2+2n+5) and it is A214405. There are a total of four sequences in this family.

FORMULA

Contribution from Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2012: (Start)

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

a(n) = 2*(2*n*(n-2)-3*(-1)^n+1).

a(n) = 4*A214345(n-3) with A214345(-3)=-1, A214345(-2)=1, A214345(-1)=-1. (End)
