Table of n, a(n) for n=2..22.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (11,-31,21).

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/3!)*(11-6*3^n+7^n).

a(n) = 11*a(n-1)-31*a(n-2)+21*a(n-3). G.f.: -x^2*(21*x+1) / ((x-1)*(3*x-1)*(7*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Jul 12 2013

a(n) = sum(i=0..n, (-1)^i * C(n,i) * C(2^(n-i)-1,3) ). - Geoffrey Critzer, Aug 24 2014
