Row sums of triangle in A112555. [Philippe Deléham, Sep 21 2009]

LINKS

Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-1,2).

FORMULA

Binomial transform of A084246. a(n+1)=A077925(n)+1.

a(n) = 4/3 - (-2)^n/3.

G.f.: (1+3x)/((1-x)(1+2x)).

E.g.f.: (4*exp(x)-exp(-2x))/3.

(-1)^(n+1)*a(n) = A078008(n+1)-A078008(n). [apart from signs the second differences of A001045]. - Paul Curtz, Jun 30 2008, Feb 24 2021

a(n) = -2*a(n-1)+4 . [Philippe Deléham, Sep 15 2009]

a(n+1) = 2*A151575(n). [Philippe Deléham, Sep 21 2009]

a(n) = A077925(n)+3*A077925(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 24 2021
