 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Linked to Jacobsthal numbers (expansion of tan(x), a.k.a. Zag numbers) A000182=1,2,16,272,...: a(n+1)-2a(n) = -(-1)^n*(A000182(n) mod 10) = (-1,2,-6,2,-6,2,-6,...). Cf. A173114, related to Euler (or secant, or Zig) numbers, A000364. a(n+1)+A010684=A001045. First differences: 0,3,-2,4,0,8,8,24,... = 0,A154879 (third differences of A001045). Main diagonal: A003945; first upper diagonal: -A171449; second: 4*A011782. LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,1,-2). FORMULA a(n) = A093380(n+4), n>3. a(n) = +2*a(n-1) +a(n-2) -2*a(n-3), n>3. G.f.: 1-x*(-1-2*x+7*x^2)/((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(1+x)). a(2n+2)+a(2n+3)=6*A047689. a(2n)-a(2n-2) = 3,1,2,4,8,16,... = 3,A000079.
