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

FORMULA

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

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

a(n) = Sum_{alpha = RootOf(-1 + 2*z + 2*z^3)} (1/43)*(8 + 9*alpha + 12*alpha^2)*alpha^(-1-n).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(k, floor((n-k)/2)) * 2^k * (1+(-1)^(n-k))/2. - Paul Barry, Jan 12 2006

G.f.: Q(0)/2, where Q(k) = 1 + 1/(1 - x*(4*k+2 + 2*x^2)/( x*(4*k+4 + 2*x^2) + 1/Q(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 30 2013
