Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,8).

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 8*a(n-2).

a(n) = -16^n*(A^n-B^n)/sqrt(41) where A = -1/(3+sqrt(41)) and B = 1/(sqrt(41)-3). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 29 2008

a(n) = -(-8)^n * a(-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Mar 05 2020

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 3*x^2 + 17*x^3 + 75*x^4 + 361*x^5 + 1683*x^6 + 7937*x^7 + ... - Michael Somos, Mar 05 2020
