FORMULA

a(n) = 194 * a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 16.

G.f.: x^2 * (1 + 15*x) / ((1 - x) * (1 - 194*x + x^2)).

a(n)=((((1+sqrt(3))^(4*n-1)-(1-sqrt(3))^(4*n-1))/(2^(2*n+1)*sqrt(3)))^2)/2-1/8. - John Sillcox (johnsillcox(AT)hotmail.com), Sep 01 2003

a(n+1) = 97*a(n)+8+7*(192*a(n)^2+32*a(n)+1)^(1/2) - Richard Choulet, Sep 19 2007

a(n) = A076139(2*n - 3) = A108281(2 - n). for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jun 16 2011

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x^2 + 210*x^3 + 40755*x^4 + 7906276*x^5 + 1533776805*x^6 + ...

a(4) = 40755 which is 285*(285-1)/2 = 165*(3*165-1)/2.

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := ChebyshevU[ 2 n - 3, 7] / 14 + ChebyshevT[ 2 n - 3, 7] / 84 - 1/12; (* Michael Somos, Feb 24 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = polchebyshev( 2*n - 3, 2, 7) / 14 + polchebyshev( 2*n - 3, 1, 7) / 84 - 1 / 12}; /* Michael Somos, Jun 16 2011 */
