FORMULA

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

a(n) = -a(-n-1) = 2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3) for all n in Z.

a(n) = F(n+2)^2 - 2*F(n+1)^2.

a(n) = A059929(n) - A059929(n-1) with A059929(-1)=1.

a(n) = -A001654(n+1) + 4*A001654(n) - A001654(n-1).

a(n) = A206351((n+2)/2)-2 for even n; a(n) = A003482((n-1)/2)+2 for odd n.

Sum_{i>=0} 1/a(i) = .754301907697893871765121109686...

a(n) = (2^(-1-n)*(-3*(-1)^n*2^(2+n)-(3-sqrt(5))^n*(-1+sqrt(5))+(1+sqrt(5))*(3+sqrt(5))^n))/5. - Colin Barker, Sep 29 2016
