Table of n, a(n) for n=1..19.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,254,-254,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = ((7-2*sqrt(7)*(-1)^n)*(8-3*sqrt(7))^((2n-(-1)^n+1)/2)+(7+2*sqrt(7)*(-1)^n)*(8+3*sqrt(7))^((2n-(-1)^n+1)/2)-14)/28. [Bruno Berselli, Jun 13 2012].

G.f.: -3*x^2*(5*x^2+32*x+5)/((x-1)*(x^2-16*x+1)*(x^2+16*x+1)). [Colin Barker, Jul 22 2012]

EXAMPLE

3936 = 254*15 + 111 + 15, 28320 = 254*111 + 111 + 15, 999855 = 254*3936 + 111, 7193295 = 254*28320 + 15.
