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

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} A084221(k).

G.f.: x*(1+3*x)/((1-4*x^2)*(1-x)).

a(n) = (4/3)*(4^(n/2)-1) if n is even, otherwise a(n) = (4/3)*(7*4^((n-3)/2)-1).

a(n) = (4/3)*(4^floor(n/2) + 4^floor((n-1)/2) - 4^floor((n-2)/2) - 1).

a(n) = 4^floor(n/2) + 4^floor((n+1)/2)/3 - 4/3.

a(n) = A132668(a(n+1)) - 1.

a(n) = A132668(a(n-1) + 1) for n > 0.

A132668(a(n)) = a(n-1) + 1 for n > 0.
