Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = A000217(n+4) - 10.

G.f.: x(5-4x)/(1-x)^3.

From Zerinvary Lajos, Oct 01 2006: (Start)

a(n) = A000096(n) + 3*n.

a(n) = A055999(n) + n.

a(n) = A056115(n) - n.

(End)

a(n) = binomial(n,2) - 4*n, n >= 9. - Zerinvary Lajos, Nov 25 2006

a(n) = A126890(n,4) for n > 3. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 30 2006

a(n) = A028569(n)/2. - Zerinvary Lajos, Feb 12 2007

If we define f(n,i,a) = Sum_{k=0..(n-i)} binomial(n,k)*stirling1(n-k,i)*Product_{j=0..k-1} (-a-j), then a(n) = -f(n,n-1,5), for n >= 1. - Milan Janjic, Dec 20 2008

a(n) = n + a(n-1) + 4. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 07 2010

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} (k+4). - Gary Detlefs, Aug 10 2010

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 7129/11340. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 14 2012

a(n) = 5n - floor(n/2) + floor(n^2/2). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 15 2013

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(x^2 + 10*x)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 17 2017
