Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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))).

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