COMMENTS

The values of 'c' are in A060569.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..26.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,6,-6,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6*a(n-2) - a(n-4) + 14; a(1)=5, a(2)=8, a(3)=48, a(4)=65.

G.f.: x*(3*x^4 + x^3 - 10*x^2 - 3*x-5) / ((x-1)*(x^2-2*x-1)*(x^2+2*x-1)). [Colin Barker, Dec 17 2012]

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 6*48 - 5 + 14 = 297, 297^2 + 304^2 = 425^2, 304 - 297 = 7, and gcd(297, 304, 425) = 1.

MAPLE

g:=proc(n) option remember; if n=1 then RETURN(5) fi; if n=2 then RETURN(8) fi; if n=3 then RETURN(48) fi; if n=4 then RETURN(65) fi; 6*g(n-2)-g(n-4)+14; end; # N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 06 2007
