Table of n, a(n) for n=0..33.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = sum(k=0..n, 2^(n-k)*binomial(1, k/2)*(1+(-1)^k)/2 ). - Paul Barry, Oct 15 2004

a(n) = A020714(n-2), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 19 2008

a(n) is the sum of top row terms of M^n, M = an infinite square production matrix as follows:

1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0,...

0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

... - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 26 2011

a(n) = floor(2^(n-2)*5). (* From Taher Jamshidi, Sep 15 2012 *)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) for n>=3, a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, a(2) = 5. - Philippe Deléham, Mar 13 2013

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 20 = (8 + 8 + 4) since the top row of M^4 = (8, 8, 4, 0, 0, 0,...).

MATHEMATICA
