%F Conjecture: a(n)=6*a(n-1)+6*a(n-2), n>1; a(0)=8, a(1)=55 . G.f.: (8+7x)/(1-6x-6x^2). - _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 19 2008

%F Theorem: a(n) = 6 a(n - 1) + 6 a(n - 2) for n>=2. Proved using the PtoRv program of Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger, and implies the above conjectures. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Sep 09 2016
