Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

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

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(4+20*x+20*x^2+4*x^3)/(1-4*x+6*x^2-4*x^3+x^4).  - Colin Barker, Jan 04 2012

a(n) = 8n^3 - 12n^2 + 12n - 4. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jan 02 2012

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) +4*a(n-3) -a(n-4). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 02 2012

a(n) = 4 * A005898(n-1).
