FORMULA

a(n) = 11*n+a(n-1)-10 with n>0, a(0)=0. [Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 06 2010]

G.f.: x*(1+10*x)/(1-x)^3. [Bruno Berselli, Feb 04 2011]

a(11*a(n)+56*n+1) = a(11*a(n)+56*n) + a(11*n+1). - Vladimir Shevelev, Jan 24 2014

MAPLE

a[0]:=0:a[1]:=1:for n from 2 to 50 do a[n]:=2*a[n-1]-a[n-2]+11 od: seq(a[n], n=0..42); - Zerinvary Lajos, Feb 18 2008
