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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Conjecture: satisfies a linear recurrence having signature (25, -234, 1222, -4147, 9867, -17160, 22308, -21879, 16159, -8866, 3510, -949, 157, -12). - Harvey P. Dale, Jan 27 2019

The conjecture above is correct. From the general formula for {a(n)} we can see that the roots for the characteristic polynomial are one 12 and thirteen 1's, so the characteristic polynomial is (x - 12)*(x - 1)^13 = x^14 - 25*x^13 + 234*x^12 - ... + 12, with corresponding recurrence coefficients 25, -234, ..., -12. - Jianing Song, Jan 28 2019
