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))^8 = 227137 + 35048*sqrt(42). - Ant King, Jan 03 2012

FORMULA

a(n) = 454275*a(n-1) - 454275*a(n-2) + a(n-3). - Vincenzo Librandi, Dec 24 2011

From Ant King, Jan 03 2012: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + 176850*x + 261*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1 - 454274*x + x^2)).

a(n) = 454274*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 177112.

a(n) = (1/672)*((11*sqrt(7) - 9*sqrt(6))*(sqrt(6) + sqrt(7))^(8*n-5) - (11*sqrt(7) + 9*sqrt(6))*(sqrt(6) - sqrt(7))^(8*n-5) - 262).

a(n) = floor((1/672)*(11*sqrt(7) - 9*sqrt(6))*(sqrt(6) + sqrt(7))^(8*n-5)). (End)
