%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A252831/b252831.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 40*n^2 - 199*n + 283 for n>3.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Dec 06 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(4 + x + 17*x^2 + 30*x^3 + 26*x^4 + 2*x^5) / (1 - x)^3.

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>6.
