Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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

FORMULA

G.f.: -(x+1)*(x^2+1)*(x^4-x^3-1)/(x^5-x^4-x^2-x+1). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 19 2011

EXAMPLE

From Tom Edgar, Feb 10 2015: (Start)

When n=4, there are 16 binary strings of length 4 and 3 of them are the ones to avoid, so a(4) = 13.

When n=5, there are 32 binary strings of length 5; the ones including a substring of the indicated form are '00000', '10000', '00001', '00011', '10011', '00110', '00111', 01001', '11001', and '10010'. Since there are 10 to avoid, we have a(5) = 22.
