Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..2000

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-6,0,1,-5,6).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-3*x+2*x^2-3*x^3+2*x^4-x^5)/(1-5*x+6*x^2-x^4+5*x^5-6*x^6) = (1-3*x+2*x^2-3*x^3+2*x^4-x^5)/((1-2*x)*(1-3*x)*(1-x^4)).

Recurrence: a(n+6) = 5*a(n+5)-6*a(n+4)+a(n+2)-5*a(n+1)+6*a(n).

a(n) = (8*3^n+12*2^n-(1-(-1)^n)*(5+i^(n+1)))/20, where i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Sep 05 2011
