 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS As n increases, the ratio of consecutive terms forms an approximate 2-cycle with the ratio a(n)/a(n-1) bounded above and below by 8193151+3096720*sqrt(7) and 127+48*sqrt(7) respectively. - Ant King, Dec 27 2011 LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..208 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Nonagonal Hexagonal Number. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,4162056194,-4162056194,-1,1). FORMULA From Ant King, Dec 28 2011: (Start) G.f.: x*(1+324*x+1168173106*x^2+20902860*x^3+82621*x^4) / ((1-x)*(1-64514*x+x^2)*(1+64514*x+x^2)). a(n) = 4162056194*a(n-2)-a(n-4)+1189158912. a(n) = a(n-1)+4162056194*a(n-2)-4162056194*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5). a(n) = 1/112*(9*((8-3*sqrt(7)*(-1)^n)*(8+3*sqrt(7))^(4*n-4)+(8+3*sqrt(7)*(-1)^n)*(8-3*sqrt(7))^(4*n-4))-32). a(n) = floor(9/112*(8-3*sqrt(7)*(-1)^n)*(8+3*sqrt(7))^(4*n-4)).
