Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-6,4,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) = a(n-1) + A055988(n) = A055990(n) - A055990(n-1) = A055991(n) - 2*A055991(n-1) + A055991(n-2).

G.f.: x*(1-x)^2/(1 - 5*x + 6*x^2 - 4*x^3 + x^4). - Colin Barker Apr 04 2012
