FORMULA

a(n) = 8*n^2 - 4*n + 2.

From Colin Barker, Aug 09 2015: (Start)

a(n) = 2*A054554(n+1).

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

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

(End)

E.g.f.: -2 + exp(x)*(2 + 4*x + 8*x^2). - Stefano Spezia, Sep 21 2019

a(n) = A051890(2*n). - Jianing Song, Aug 28 2022
