Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,-5).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) + 20, n>0.

From R. J. Mathar, Jan 03 2011: (Start)

G.f.: 4*(-1+6*x)/((1-5*x)*(1-x)).

a(n) = 4*A104891(n-1), n>0. (End)

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 25 2013

E.g.f.: exp(5*x) - 5*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jan 28 2019
