Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio (1+sqrt(2))^4=17+12*sqrt(2).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..17.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (35, -35, 1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x(1-7*x-2*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-34*x+x^2))

a(n) = 35*a(n-1)-35*a(n-2)+a(n-3)

a(n) = 34*a(n-1)-a(n-2)-8

a(n) = 1/16 *((3*sqrt(2)-2)*(1+sqrt(2))^(4*n-2)- (3*sqrt(2)+2)*(1-sqrt(2))^(4*n-2)+4)

a(n) = ceiling(1/16 *(3*sqrt(2)-2)*(1+sqrt(2))^(4*n-2))

EXAMPLE

The second hexagonal number which is also decagonal is A000384(28)=1540. Hence a(2) = 28.
