Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,2).

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1 - 2*x^2 - 2*x^3).

a(n) = 2*a(n-2) + 2*a(n-3), with a(0)=1, a(1)=0, a(2)=2.

a(n) = Sum_{alpha = RootOf(-1 + 2*z^2 + 2*z^3)} (-1/19)*(-3 - 5*alpha + 4*alpha^2)*alpha^(-1 - n).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} binomial(k, n-2*k)*2^k. - Paul Barry, Oct 19 2004

Construct the matrix T with elements T(n,j) = [A^*j]*[S^*(j-1)](n) with the sequences A = (0,2,2,0,0...) and S = (0,1,0,0...) and the convolution operation *. Define S^*0 = I = (1, repeat(0)). Then T(n,j) for j>=1, counts closed n-walks containing j loops on the graph defined above in a comment, and a(n) = Sum_{j=1..n} T(n,j). - David Neil McGrath, Jan 16 2015
