COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity,a(n)/a(n-1)) = (sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))^8 = 4801+1960*sqrt(6).  - Ant King, Dec 27 2011

FORMULA

From Ant King, Dec 27 2011: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1+2178*x+21*x^2)/((1-x)*(1-9602*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 9603*a(n-1)-9603*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

a(n) = 9602*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+2200.

a(n) = 1/96*((3*sqrt(3)-sqrt(2))*(sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))^(8n-5)+ (3*sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))*(sqrt(3)-sqrt(2))^(8n-5)-22).

a(n) = floor(1/96*(3*sqrt(3)-sqrt(2))*(sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))^(8n-5)).

(End)
