G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

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

FORMULA

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

a(n) = A168072(n)/3^n.

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 05 2017: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n > 3.

a(n) = (45 - 48*n + 18*cos(2*(n-1)*Pi/3) - 9*cos(Pi*cos(2*(n-1)*Pi/3) + Pi*sin(2*(n-1)*Pi/3)/sqrt(3)) + 14*sqrt(3)*sin(2*(n-1)*Pi/3))/24. (End)
