Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,34,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 16*a(n-1) + a(n-2) if n odd, otherwise a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2), for n >= 2.

a(n) = 34*a(n-2)-a(n-4). G.f.: (x^3-17*x^2+x+1)/((x^2-6*x+1)*(x^2+6*x+1)). [Colin Barker, Jul 16 2012]
