Seiichi Manyama, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..2000

FORMULA

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

G.f.: (-x^3 - 4*x^2 + x + 1)/(x^4 - 8*x^2 + 1)

a(n+4) = 8*a(n+2)-a(n). [Richard Choulet, Dec 04 2008]

a(n) = (0.25 + sqrt(10)/20)*(sqrt(4 + sqrt(15)))^n + (0.25 + sqrt(10)/20)*(sqrt(4 - sqrt(15)))^n + ( - 1/20*10^(1/2) + 1/4)*( - sqrt(4 + sqrt(15)))^n + ( - 1/20*10^(1/2) + 1/4)*( - (sqrt(4 - sqrt(15))))^n. [Richard Choulet, Dec 06 2008]
