Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

Starting with "1" = INVERT transform of A007482: (1, 3, 11, 39, 139,...). [Gary W. Adamson, Aug 06 2010]

FORMULA

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

a(n) = (-i*sqrt(2))^(n-1) U(n-1, i*sqrt(2)) where U is the Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind and i^2 = -1.

a(n) = ((2+sqrt(6))^n - (2-sqrt(6))^n)/(2 sqrt(6)). [Al Hakanson (hawkuu(AT)gmail.com), Jan 05 2009, Jan 07 2009]

a(n+1) = Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n} A099089(n,k)*2^k. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 21 2011
