FORMULA

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) + 3*a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5), for n>5 (conjectured).

a(n) = A206776(n) + 4*n^2 - 2*n + 1 (conjectured). - Eric W. Weisstein, May 08 2017

G.f.: 2*x*(3 - 5*x - 10*x^2 - x^3 - 3*x^4) / ((1 - x)^3*(1 - 3*x - 2*x^2)) (conjectured). - Colin Barker, May 31 2017

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Block[{g = Graph@ Flatten[{Table[i <-> 2 n + 1, {i, 2, 2 n, 2}], Table[i <-> Mod[i, 2 n] + 1, {i, 2 n}]}]}, -1 + ParallelSum[ Boole@ ConnectedGraphQ@ Subgraph[g, s], {s, Subsets@ Range[2 n + 1]}]]; Array[a, 8]
