Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,1,-2).

FORMULA

a(n) = A166956(n+1)-3*A166956(n).

a(2n) = -A000302(n). a(2n+1) = 6*(-1)^n*A084240(n).

a(n+1) - 2*a(n) = 4*( 3*(-1)^n-1) = 8 *(-1)^n*A000034(n).

G.f.: -(5*x-1)*(3*x-1) / ( (x-1)*(2*x-1)*(1+x) ). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 01 2011

E.g.f.: 8*sinh(x) - exp(2*x). - G. C. Greubel, May 30 2016
