COMMENTS

Generalized Pell numbers (A000129). Antidiagonals of A038207. - Mark Dols, Aug 31 2009

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (20,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = F(n, 20), the n-th Fibonacci polynomial evaluated at x=20. - T. D. Noe, Jan 19 2006

a(n) = 20*a(n-1)+a(n-2) for n>1, a(0)=1, a(1)=20. G.f.: 1/(1-20*x-x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 21 2008

a(n) = (5/101)*sqrt(101)*((10+sqrt(101))^n-(10-sqrt(101))^n)+(1/2)*((10 +sqrt(101))^n+(10-sqrt(101))^n). - Paolo P. Lava, Dec 03 2009
