COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r=lim(n->Infinity,a(n)/a(n-1))=(4+sqrt(15))^4=1921+496*sqrt(15). - Ant King, Dec 15 2011

FORMULA

From Ant King, Dec 15 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 3843*a(n-1) - 3843*a(n-2) + a(n-3).

a(n) = 3842*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 512.

a(n) = 1/240*((2+sqrt(15))^2*(4+sqrt(15))^(4n-3)+ (2-sqrt(15))^2*(4-sqrt(15))^(4n-3)-32).

a(n) = floor(1/240*((2+sqrt(15))^2*(4+sqrt(15))^(4n-3))).

GF: x*(1+504*x+7*x^2)/((1-x)*(1-3842*x+x^2)).

(End)
