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) = 7*n - a(n-1) - 8, with n>1, a(1)=3.

a(n) = A168331(n-1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 25 2009

G.f.: x*(3 + 4*x^2)/((1+x) * (x-1)^2). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 25 2009

a(n) = 3 + 7*floor((n-1)/2). - Bruno Berselli, Sep 18 2013

From G. C. Greubel, Jul 19 2016: (Start)

E.g.f.: (1/4)*(-7 + 16*exp(x) + (14*x - 9)*exp(2*x))*exp(-x).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3). (End)
