COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity,a(n)/a(n-1)) = (sqrt(5)+sqrt(6))^8 = 116161+21208*sqrt(30). - Ant King, Dec 30 2011

FORMULA

Contribution from Harvey P. Dale, Dec 09 2011: (Start)

G.f.: x*(-133*x^2-64722*x-1)/(x^3-232323*x^2+232323*x-1).

a(1)=1, a(2)=297045, a(3)=69010153345, a(n) = 232323*a(n-1)-232323*a(n-2)+a(n-3). (Start)

Contribution from Ant King, Dec 30 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 232322*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+64856.

a(n) = 1/480*((17+2*sqrt(30))*(sqrt(5)+sqrt(6))^(8n-6)+(17-2*sqrt(30))*(sqrt(5)-sqrt(6))^(8n-6)-134).

a(n) = floor(1/480*(17+2*sqrt(30))*(sqrt(5)+sqrt(6))^(8n-6)). (End)
