FORMULA

a(0) = 2, a(1) = 1, a(n) = a(n-1)+6a(n-2).

a(n) = 3^n + (-2)^n. [Gary Detlefs, Dec 20 2009]

The sequence 1, 13, 19... is a(n+1) = 3*3^n-2*(-2)^n.

exp( Sum_{n >= 1} a(n)*x^n/n ) = Sum_{n >= 0} A015441(n+1)*x^n. - Peter Bala, Mar 30 2015

a(n) = 2*A015441(n+1) - A015441(n), a formula given by Paul Curtz for autosequences of the 2nd kind. - Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jun 02 2017
