COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = (sqrt(6) + sqrt(7))^4 = 337 + 52*sqrt(42). - Ant King, Jan 03 2012

FORMULA

G.f.: -x*(1 - 250*x + 9*x^2) / ( (x-1)*(x^2 - 674*x + 1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 21 2011

From Ant King, Jan 03 2012: (Start)

a(n) = 674*a(n-1) - a(n-2) - 240.

a(n) = (1/84)*((sqrt(6) + 3*sqrt(7))*(sqrt(6) + sqrt(7))^(4*n-3) + (sqrt(6) - 3*sqrt(7))*(sqrt(6) - sqrt(7))^(4*n-3) + 30).

a(n) = ceiling((1/84)*(sqrt(6) + 3*sqrt(7))*(sqrt(6) + sqrt(7))^(4*n-3)). (End)
