Table of n, a(n) for n=1..28.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,8,-8,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n+4)=8*a(n+2)-a(n)-27; r15=sqrt(15);

a(n)=((1+r15)*(4+r15)^((n-1)/2)+(1-r15*(4-r15)^((n-1)/2)+18)/4 n odd

a(n)=((11+3*r15)*(4+r15)^((n-2)/2)+(11-3*r15)*(4-r15)^((n-2)/2)+18)/4 n even

a(n)=a(n-1)+8*a(n-2)-8*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5). G.f.: -x*(4*x^4-5*x^3-36*x^2+5*x+5) / ((x-1)*(x^4-8*x^2+1)). [Colin Barker, Jan 01 2013]

EXAMPLE

for n=4 a(4)=49; b(4)=12; binomial(49,6)=1383816;

binomial(49,4)*binomial(12,2)= 211876*66=1383816;

MAPLE

n:=1: for m from 1 to 2000 do w:=sqrt(1+60*m*(m-1)):

if (w=floor(w)) then a(n)=(9+w)/2: b(n):=m: inc(n): end if: end do:
