COMMENTS

Reciprocal Chebyshev polynomial of second kind evaluated at 3 multiplied by (-1)^n.

a(n) is (-1)^n times the determinant of the following tri-diagonal n X n matrix : [2 3 0 0 ... ] [3 2 3 0 ... ] [0 3 2 3 0 ... ] [. 0 3 2 3 ... ] [. . . . . ] [. . . 3 2 3 0] [. . . 0 3 2 3] [. . . 0 0 3 2] - Sharon Sela (sharonsela(AT)hotmail.com), Jan 19 2002

FORMULA

a(n) = ( A088137(n+1) )^2 + ( A087455(n+1)/2 )^2 - ( A087455(n+2)/2 )^2. - Creighton Dement, Aug 20 2004

A025170(n) = ( A088137(n+1) )^2 + ( A087455(n+1)/2 )^2 - ( A087455(n+2)/2 )^2. Using the known formula ( see A088137 ) |3*A087455(n) - A087455(n+1)| = 2*A088137(n+1) or 3*A087455(n) + A087455(n+1) = 2*A088137(n+1) A025170 can be expressed entirely using A087455 - Creighton Dement, Aug 22 2004

a(0)=1, a(1)=-2, a(n) = -(2*a(n-1)+9*a(n-2)) for n>1. [From Philippe Deléham, Sep 19 2009]
