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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 6*a(n-2) - 12*a(n-3).

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Oct 14 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 2*x*(10 + 3*x - 54*x^2) / ((1 - 2*x)*(1 - 6*x^2)).

a(n) = 2^(2+n) + 2^((-3+n)/2)*3^((-1+n)/2)*(12-12*(-1)^n+5*sqrt(6)+5*(-1)^n*sqrt(6)).

(End)
