COMMENTS
a(n) is also the number of vertices of the Minkowski sum of 2*n-2 simplices conv(e_{i,j},e_{i,j+1},e_{i+1,j},e_{i+1,j+1}) for i=0,1 and j=0,...,n-2, viewing R^(3n) having basis {e_{i,j} | i=0,1,2; j=0,...,n-1}.

FORMULA
a(n) = 13*a(n-1) - 31*a(n-2) + 20*a(n-3) - 4*a(n-4) for n>= 5.
G.f.: (x+x^2-x^3)/(1-13*x+31*x^2-20*x^3+4*x^4).
EXAMPLE
For n = 2 the a(2)=14 vertices are (00,10), (00,11), (00,20), (00,21), (01,10), (01,11), (01,20), (01,21), (10,10), (10, 20), (10,21), (11,11), (11, 20), (11, 21), where (ij,kl) represents e_{i,j}+e_{k,l}. The pair (10,11) does not represent vertices since e_{1,0}+e_{1,1} is a convex combination of the vectors 2e_{1,0} + 2e_{1,1}. Ditto for the pair (11,10).
MAPLE
a:= proc(n) option remember;
if n = 1 then
return(1);
elif n = 2 then
return(14);
elif n = 3 then
return(150);
elif n = 4 then
return(1536);
else
return(13*a(n-1) - 31*a(n-2) + 20*a(n-3) - 4*a(n-4));
end if;
end proc:
seq(a(n), n=1..20);
