Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25.

Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Carol Number

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,-7,-6,8).

FORMULA

a(n) = (2^n-1)^2-2.

a(n) = 6*a(n-1)-7*a(n-2)-6*a(n-3)+8*a(n-4). G.f.: x*(16*x^2-14*x+1) / ((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(4*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Jul 07 2014

MAPLE

[seq (((stirling2(n, 2))^2-2), n=2..23)]; - Zerinvary Lajos, Dec 20 2006

MATHEMATICA

lst={}; Do[p=(2^n-1)^2-2; AppendTo[lst, p], {n, 66}]; lst (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Sep 27 2008 *)

PROG

(PARI) Vec(x*(16*x^2-14*x+1)/((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(4*x-1)) + O(x^100)) \\ Colin Barker, Jul 07 2014
