Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-2).

FORMULA

Recurrence: {-2*a(n)+a(n+1)-1=0, a(0)=1, a(1)=3, a(2)=8}.

a(n) = 9*2^(n-2) - 1 for n > 1. - Brad Clardy, Sep 23 2011

MAPLE

spec := [S, {S=Prod(Union(Prod(Z, Z), Sequence(Z)), Sequence(Union(Z, Z)))}, unlabeled ]: seq(combstruct[count](spec, size=n), n=0..20);

MATHEMATICA

a=8; lst={1, 3, a}; k=9; Do[a+=k; AppendTo[lst, a]; k+=k, {n, 0, 5!}]; lst (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Dec 17 2008 *)

a[0] := 1; a[1] := 3; a[2] := 8; a[n_] := 2*a[n - 1] + 1; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 12}] (* L. Edson Jeffery, Dec 18 2014 *)
