%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A229666/b229666.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 12*a(n-1) - 48*a(n-2) + 64*a(n-3) for n>6.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Sep 20 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x^2*(4 + 13*x + 112*x^2 - 104*x^3 - 32*x^4) / (1 - 4*x)^3.

%F a(n) = 2^(2*n-7) * (106 - 145*n + 50*n^2) for n>3.
