COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity,a(n)/a(n-1)) = (6+sqrt(35))^4 = 10081+1704*sqrt(35). - Ant King, Dec 31 2011

FORMULA

From Ant King, Dec 31 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 20163*a(n-1)-20163*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

a(n) = 20162*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+6768.

a(n) = 1/560*((39+4*sqrt(35))*(6+sqrt(35))^(4*n-3)+(39-4*sqrt(35))*(6-sqrt(35))^(4*n-3)-188).

a(n) = floor(1/560*(39+4*sqrt(35))*(6+sqrt(35))^(4*n-3)).

G.f.: x(1+6721*x+46*x^2) / ((1-x)(1-20162*x+x^2)).
