Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-4,4,-4,4,-4,4,-3,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x^2*(2-2*x+3*x^2-2*x^3+3*x^4-2*x^5+2*x^6-x^7) / ((1-x)^3*(1+x^2)*(1+x^4)). - Colin Barker, Dec 10 2015

From Robert Israel, Dec 10 2015: (Start)

a(n) = floor(A024214(n+1)/A024213(n+1)).

a(n) = floor((3 n^2 + 5 n - 6)/8).

a(8*k+j) = 24*k^2 + (5 + 6*j) k + b(j), where b(j) = -1,0,2,4,7,11,16,22 for j = 0..7. (End)

MAPLE

seq(floor((3*n^2 + 5*n - 6)/8), n=1..100); # Robert Israel, Dec 10 2015

MATHEMATICA

S[n_] := 3 Range[0, n + 2] + 1; Table[Floor[SymmetricPolynomial[4, S@ n]/SymmetricPolynomial[3, S@ n]], {n, 61}] (* Michael De Vlieger, Dec 10 2015 *)
