Table of n, a(n) for n=0..23.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,1,-4).

FORMULA

a(n) = (-5-3*(-1)^n+2^(3+2*n))/15. a(n) = 4*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-4*a(n-3). G.f.: 2*x / ((x-1)*(x+1)*(4*x-1)). [Colin Barker, Feb 17 2013]

a(n) = 2*A033114(n). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 27 2019

MAPLE

a:=proc(n) if n=0 then 0 elif n mod 2 = 1 then 4*a(n-1)+2 else 4*a(n-1) fi end: seq(a(n), n=0..23);

MATHEMATICA

b[0] := 0 b[1] := 2 b[n_?EvenQ] := b[n] = 4*b[n - 1] b[n_?OddQ] := b[n] = 4*b[n - 1] + 2 a = Table[b[n], {n, 0, 25}]
