Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7,-14,8).

FORMULA

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

From Colin Barker, Jul 07 2014: (Start)

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)). (End)

E.g.f.: 2 - exp(x) - 2*exp(2*x) + exp(4*x). - Stefano Spezia, Dec 09 2019
