Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,20,27,-14,-25,4,5,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 20*a(n-2) + 27*a(n-3) - 14*a(n-4) - 25*a(n-5) + 4*a(n-6) + 5*a(n-7) - a(n-8).

G.f.: -(5*x^7 +8*x^6 -75*x^5 -56*x^4 +135*x^3 +120*x^2 +7*x -8)/((x +1)*(x^2 -2*x -1)*(x^5 -4*x^4 -5*x^3 +9*x^2 +4*x -1)). [Colin Barker, Aug 31 2012]
