COMMENTS

In Thomas Koshy's book on Fibonacci and Lucas numbers, the formula for even-indexed Lucas numbers in terms of squares of Lucas numbers (A001254) is erroneously given as L(2n) = 2L(n)^2 + 2(-1)^(n - 1) on page 404 as Identity 34.7. - Alonso del Arte, Sep 07 2010

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*(A000032(n))^2 -2*(-1)^n.

a(n) = 2*A047946(n).

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

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

a(n) = 2^(1-n)*((-2)^n+(3-sqrt(5))^n+(3+sqrt(5))^n). - Colin Barker, Oct 01 2016
