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

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-4*x)/(1-x+x^2).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(n-k) * ( C(k,n-k) + 4*C(k,n-k-1) ).

a(n) = (1/6)*{3*(n mod 6)-[(n+1) mod 6)]-4*[(n+2) mod 6)]-3*[(n+3) mod 6)]+[(n+4) mod 6)]+4*[(n+5) mod 6)]}. - Paolo P. Lava, Feb 01 2008

a(n) = a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>1. [Philippe Deléham, Nov 03 2008]

a(n) = (1+(-n mod 3))^(n mod 3)*(-1)^floor((n+2)/3). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Aug 31 2014

a(n) = (3*cos(n*Pi/3) - 7*sqrt(3)*sin(n*Pi/3))/3. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 23 2016

E.g.f.: (3*cos(sqrt(3)*x/2) - 7*sqrt(3)*sin(sqrt(3)*x/2))*exp(x/2)/3. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jun 27 2016
