Nathaniel Johnston, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..5000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,3,-3,-3,3,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = +a(n-1) +3*a(n-2) -3*a(n-3) -3*a(n-4) +3*a(n-5) +a(n-6) -a(n-7).

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

a(n) = (2*n+3+(-1)^n)*(2*n+3-3*(-1)^n)*(2*n+15+5*(-1)^n)/384. - Luce ETIENNE, Mar 31 2015
