COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity,a(n)/a(n-1)) = (2+sqrt(5))^8 = 51841+23184*sqrt(5). - Ant King, Dec 24 2011

FORMULA

From Ant King, Dec 24 2011: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1+18088*x+55*x^2)/((1-x)*(1-103682*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 103683*a(n-1)-103683*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

a(n) = 103682*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+18144.

a(n) = 1/80*((sqrt(5)-1)*(2+sqrt(5))^(8n-5)- (sqrt(5)+1)*(2-sqrt(5))^(8n-5)-14).

a(n) = floor(1/80*(sqrt(5)-1)*(2+sqrt(5))^(8n-5)).

(End)
