Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1,0,1,-2,1).

FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Jun 28 2012: (Start)

G.f. -2*x^5 / ( (x + 1)*(x^2 + 1)*(x - 1)^3 ).

a(n) = 2*A001972(n-5) = 2*A130519(n-1). (End)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5) + a(n-6). - Eric W. Weisstein, Sep 11 2018
