COMMENTS

abs(a(n))=A002450(n)=A001045(2n).

Binomial transform is (0,1,-3,9,-27,...).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..24.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = ((-1)^n-(-4)^n)/3.

a(n) = sum(k=1..n, (-1)^(n+k)*binomial(n, k)(-3)^(k-1)).

G.f.: x/((1+x)*(1+4*x)).

E.g.f.: (exp(-x)-exp(-4x))/3.
