FORMULA

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

a(n) = ((3-sqrt(17))^n+(3+sqrt(17))^n)/2^n.

a(n) = [x^n] ( (1 + 3*x + sqrt(1 + 6*x + 17*x^2))/2 )^n for n >= 1. - Peter Bala, Jun 23 2015

a(n) = (-2)^n * a(-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Oct 13 2016

If c = (3 + sqrt(17))/2, then c^n = (a(n) + sqrt(17)*A007482(n-1)) / 2. - Michael Somos, Oct 13 2016

E.g.f.: 2*exp(3*x/2)*cosh(sqrt(17)*x/2). - Stefano Spezia, Oct 21 2022

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 2 + 3*x + 13*x^2 + 45*x^3 + 161*x^4 + 573*x^5 + 2041*x^6 + 7269*x^7 + ...
