%N a(n) = ((4 + sqrt 6)^n + (4 - sqrt 6)^n)/2.

%C Binomial transform of A084120. Sequences defined by a(n) = ((A + sqrt(B))^n + (A - sqrt(B))^n)/2 have recurrences a(n) = 2*A*a(n-1) + (B - A^2)*a(n-2) and generating functions g.f.: (1-Ax)/(1-2Ax+(A^2-B)x^2). - _R. J. Mathar_, Nov 01 2008

%F From _R. J. Mathar_, _Klaus Brockhaus_ and _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 01 2008: (Start)

%F a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2).

%F G.f.: (1-4x)/(1-8x+10x^2). (End)

%F a(n) = (Sum_{k=0..n} A098158(n,k)*4^(2*k)*6^(n-k))/4^n. - _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 06 2008

%e a(3) = 136.

%e a(4) = ((4 + sqrt(6))^4 + (4 - sqrt(6))^4)/2 = 4^4 + 6*sqrt(6)^2*4^2 + sqrt(6)^4 = 4^4 + 6*6*4^2 + 6^2 = 868. - _Klaus Brockhaus_, Nov 01 2008
