 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Partial sums of A084221. a(n) = A097163(n+1)/4. Third binomial transform is A097165. a(n+1) = 4*A097163(n). - Zerinvary Lajos, Mar 17 2008 See A133628 for an essentially identical sequence. - R. J. Mathar, Jun 08 2008 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,4,-4). FORMULA a(n) = 5*2^n/2 - (-2)^n/6 - 4/3; a(n) = a(n-1) + 4a(n-2) - 4a(n-3). G.f.
