Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,3).

FORMULA

From Bruno Berselli, Jan 28 2011 - Jan 30 2011: (Start)

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

a(n) = A062547(A042963(n-1)).

a(n) = 2*sum[a(i), i=1..n-1]-2*(-1)^n+1 for n>1. (End)
