COMMENTS

Limiting ratio a(n+1)/a(n) is near -1.071806167400881 as n->infinity.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..44.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-4, -6, -4, -1).

FORMULA

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

a(n)= -4*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) -4*a(n-3) -a(n-4).

MATHEMATICA

p[x_] = (x^4 - x^3 - 1)/(x + 1)^4;

a = Table[SeriesCoefficient[ Series[p[x], {x, 0, 50}], n], {n, 0, 50}]
