Table of n, a(n) for n=0..21.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5, -2).

FORMULA

G.f.: -(-5+4*x)/(1-5*x+2*x^2). a(n) = 5*A107839(n)-4*A107839(n-1). [From R. J. Mathar, Apr 10 2009]

a(n)=(5/2)*{[(5/2)+(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n+[(5/2)-(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n} +(1/2)*sqrt(17)*{[(5/2)+(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n-[(5/2)-(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n}, with n>=0 [From Paolo P. Lava, Jul 31 2009]
