COMMENTS

a(n)/a(n-1) tends to (2*sqrt(3) + 2) = an eigenvalue of matrix X and a root to the characteristic polynomial x^3 - 2x^2 - 16x - 16.

FORMULA

a(n) - 2*a(n-1) + 16*a(n-2) + 16*a(n-3); for n>3, given a(1) = 1, a(2) = 14, a(3) = 60. Term (1,1) of X^n, where X = the 3x3 matrix [1,2,3; 2,0,2; 3,2,1].

a(n) = (2/3)*[2+2*sqrt(3)]^n*sqrt(3)+[2+2*sqrt(3)]^n+[2-2*sqrt(3)]^n-(-2)^n-(2/3)*sqrt(3) *[2-2*sqrt(3)]^n, with n>= 0 - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 06 2008

G.f.: -x*(1+12*x+16*x^2) / ( (2*x+1)*(8*x^2+4*x-1) ) [From Harvey P. Dale, May 03 2011]

a(n) = ( A180222(n+2) +(-2)^n)/2. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 08 2016

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 1904 = 2*a(4) + 16*a(3) + 16*a(2) = 2*360 + 16*60 + 16*14.

a(4) = 360 since term (1,1) of X^4 = 360.
