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) = 10*n - a(n-1) - 2, with n>1, a(1)=4.

a(n) = (3 + 5*(-1)^n + 10*n)/2. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 27 2009

G.f.: 2*x*(2 + 5*x - 2*x^2)/((1+x)*(x-1)^2). - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 19 2013

a(n) = a(n-1) +a(n-2) -a(n-3). - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 19 2013

a(n) = 2*A168278(n). - Bruno Berselli, Sep 19 2013

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(5 - 8*exp(x) + (10*x + 3)*exp(2*x))*exp(-x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 22 2016
