 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS abs(a(n))=A002450(n)=A001045(2n). Binomial transform is (0,1,-3,9,-27,...). LINKS 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.
