COMMENTS

Alternating row sums of triangle A206819. Large Schroeder numbers in decimal expansion of ratio a(n)/a(n+1). [A-number corrected by Philippe Deléham, Feb 26 2013]

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..20.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9, -10).

FORMULA

G.f.: -x/(-10*x^2+9*x-1).

a(n) = 9a(n-1)-10a(n-2), a(0)=0, a(1)=1. [Harvey P. Dale, May 06 2011]

a(n) = 1/sqrt(41)*((9/2+1/2*sqrt(41))^n-(9/2-1/2*sqrt(41))^n). - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 06 2011

a(n+1) = Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n}A206819(n,k)*(-1)^k. - Philippe Deléham, Feb 26 2013
