Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,62,0,-1).

FORMULA

G.f.: -(x+1)*(x^2-16*x-15) / ((x^2-8*x+1)*(x^2+8*x+1)). - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 02 2013, simplified by Colin Barker, Dec 28 2013

From Gerry Martens, Jul 11 2015: (Start)

Interspersion of 2 sequences [a0(n),a1(n)]:

a0(n) = ((-15-4*sqrt(15))/(31+8*sqrt(15))^n+(-15+4*sqrt(15))*(31+8*sqrt(15))^n)/2.

a1(n) = (1/(31+8*sqrt(15))^n+(31+8*sqrt(15))^n)/2. (End)
