COMMENTS

{a(k): 1 <= k <= 4} = divisors of 6. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 17 2009

LINKS

R. Zumkeller, Enumerations of Divisors - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 17 2009

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1).

FORMULA

a(n)+ n-2 = {a(n-1) +a(n+1)}/2

a(n) = (n^3-6*n^2+14*n-6)/3.

Contribution from Bruno Berselli, May 31 2010: (Start)

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

a(n)-4*a(n-1)+6*a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)+a(n-4) = 0 with n>4. For n=9, 121-4*78+6*47-4*26+13 = 0.

a(n) = ( A177342(n)-A000290(n-1)-3*A014106(n-2) )/4 with n>1. For n=11, a(11) = (1671-100-3*189)/4 = 251. (End)

EXAMPLE

2 = (1+3)/2 -0. 3 = (2+6)/2 - 1, 6 = (3+13)/2 - 2, etc.
