FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) for n>3.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Aug 17 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 5*x*(5 - 14*x + 4*x^2) / (1 - 6*x + 4*x^2).

a(n) = sqrt(5)*((3-sqrt(5))^n*(1+sqrt(5)) + (-1+sqrt(5))*(3+sqrt(5))^n) for n>1.

(End)

EXAMPLE

Some solutions for n=3:

..0..7..1....0..2..6....0..5..7....0..2..6....0..5.10....0..6..4....0..7..1

..5..0..2....6..0..2....7.11..5....6..4..2....7.11..5....5.10..6....1..0..2

..7..1..0....2..1..0....5..7.11....2..6..4....5.10..6....6..5..0....2..1..8

Vertex neighbors:

0 -> 1 2 5 6 7

1 -> 0 2 3 7 8

2 -> 0 1 4 6 8

3 -> 1 7 8 9 11

4 -> 2 6 8 9 10

5 -> 0 6 7 10 11

6 -> 0 2 4 5 10

7 -> 0 1 3 5 11

8 -> 1 2 3 4 9
