COMMENTS

From Bruno Berselli, Oct 30 2012: (Start)

More generally, for sequences of the type "Gaussian binomial coefficient [n,3] for q=-m", we have:

a(n) = (1-(-m)^n)*(1-(-m)^(n-1))*(1-(-m)^(n-2))/((1+m)*(1-m^2)*(1+m^3)) = (-1+(1-m+m^2)*m^(2n-3)+(-1)^n*m^(n-2)*(1-m+m^2-m^(2n-1)))/(-1-m+m^2-m^4+m^5+m^6),

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