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) = 4*n - a(n-1) - 6, with n>1, a(1)=1.

a(n) = A163980(n-1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 25 2009

G.f.: x*(1 + 3*x^2)/( (1+x)*(x-1)^2 ). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 15 2013

a(n) = A168276(n) - 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 17 2013

a(n) = a(n-1) +a(n-2) -a(n-3). - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 17 2013

E.g.f.: (-1 + 3*exp(x) + 2*(x - 1)*exp(2*x))*exp(-x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 16 2016
