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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 5*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) for n>5.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Sep 09 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(9 + 4*x + 8*x^2 - 36*x^3 - 72*x^4) / ((1 - 2*x)*(1 - 3*x)).

a(n) = 3^(2+n) - 2^(2+n) for n>3.

(End)

EXAMPLE

Some solutions for n=4:

..3....3...-4....0....1....0...-3...-1...-2....4....0...-4....0....0....3....2

.-1...-2....3....3...-1...-2....2....0....4...-4....0....3...-2...-1....0...-1

.-1...-1....0...-3....0....1...-2....1...-2....4....1....0....0....0...-3....0

..2....1...-2....2....0....1....0...-3...-2...-2...-3...-3....3...-1....3....1
