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

FORMULA

E.g.f.: exp(x) - exp(-x/2)*cos(sqrt(3)*x/2) - 3*exp(x/2)*sin(sqrt(3)*x/2)/sqrt(3);

E.g.f.: F(1, 3, 1, x) + F(1, 3, 2, x) + F(1, 6, 4, x) + F(1, 6, 5, x);

a(n) = a(n-6), with a(0)=0, a(1)=a(2)=1, a(3)=0, a(4)=a(5)=2;

a(n) = 1 - cos(2*Pi*n/3) - 3*sin(Pi*n/3)/3.

a(n) = A001045(n) mod 3.

G.f.: x*(1+2*x^3)/(1-x+x^2-x^3+x^4-x^5); a(n)=a(n-1)-a(n-2)+a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5). - Paul Barry, Jul 27 2005

a(n) = 1/30*{12*(n mod 6)+2*[(n+1) mod 6]-8*[(n+2) mod 6]+7*[(n+3) mod 6]+2*[(n+4) mod 6]-3*[(n+5) mod 6]} with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 27 2006

a(n) = ( n * floor( 3(n+1)/2 ) - 2n ) mod 3. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 13 2013
