 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Row sums of A110330. Results from a general construction: the row sums of the inverse of the number triangle whose columns have e.g.f. (x^k/k!)/(1-a*x-b*x^2) have g.f. (1-(a+2)x-(2b-a-1)x^2)/(1-x)^3 and general term 1+(b-a)*n-b*n^2. This is the binomial transform of (1,-a,-2b,0,0,0,...). Hankel transform of A007054(n)-2*0^n. - Paul Barry, Jul 20 2008 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1). FORMULA a(n) = 1-n-n^2. G.f.: (1-4*x+x^2)/(1-x)^3. a(n) = binomial(n+2, 2) - 4*binomial(n+1, 2) + binomial(n, 2). a(n) = 3*a(n-1) -3*a(n-2) +a(n-3). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 08 2012 E.g.f.: exp(x)*(1-2*x-x^2). - Tom Copeland, Dec 02 2013 a(n) = -A165900(n+1) (= -A028387(n-1) for n > 0). - M.
