 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Constant term of the reduction by x^2->x+1 of the polynomial p(n,x) defined below in Comments. The polynomial p(n,x) is defined by ((x+d)^n-(x-d)^n)/(2d), where d=sqrt(x+3).  For an introduction to reductions of polynomials by substitutions such as x^2->x+1, see A192232. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,8,-4,-4). FORMULA a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+8*a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)-4*a(n-4). G.f.: 2*x^2 / (4*x^4+4*x^3-8*x^2-2*x+1). [Colin Barker, Dec 09 2012] EXAMPLE The first five polynomials p(n,x) and their reductions are as follows: p(0,x)=1 -> 1 p(1,x)=2x -> 2x p(2,x)=3+x+3x^2 -> 6+4x p(3,x)=12x+4x^2+4x^3 -> 8+24x p(4,x)=9+6x+31x^2+10x^3+5x^4 -> 60+72x. From these, read A192383=(1,0,6,8,60,...) and A192384=(0,2,4,24,72,...) MATHEMATICA (See A192383.) CROSSREFS Cf. A192232, A192383, A192385=(1/2)A192384.
