 OFFSET 1,2 LINKS Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,0,12,0,0,-36). FORMULA a(n) = 12*a(n-3)-36*a(n-6). - Clark Kimberling, Aug 18 2012 G.f.: (1 + 3*x + 11*x^2 + 5*x^3 + 4*x*4)/(1 - 6*x^3)^2. - Clark Kimberling, Aug 18 2012 EXAMPLE Let esf abbreviate "elementary symmetric function". Then 0th esf of {1}:  1; 1st esf of {1,2}:  1+2=3; 2nd esf of {1,2,3} is 1*2+1*3+2*3=11.
