Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

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

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3) = n + 1 - 3*(-1)^n. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 22 2009

G.f.: x*(5+2*x^2-5*x)/((1+x)*(x-1)^2). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 22 2009

a(n) = n - 4 + 2^(2-(-1)^n). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Dec 13 2013

a(n) = A004442(n-1) + 2*(1-(-1)^n) = A147677(n) - floor((n+3)/2). - Filip Zaludek, Oct 31 2016
