Harry J. Smith, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..1000

E. J. Friedman, Math. Magic

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

FORMULA

a(n) = 10n^2 + 46n + 29 with n > 1.

From Colin Barker, Apr 22 2012: (Start)

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

G.f.: x^2*(161 - 226*x + 85*x^2)/(1-x)^3. (End)
