LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-1,-5,5,1,-3,1). FORMULA a(n) = 3*a(n-1)-a(n-2)-5*a(n-3)+5*a(n-4)+a(n-5)-3*a(n-6)+a(n-7). From Colin Barker, Dec 05 2015: (Start) a(n) = 1/48*(38*n^4-20*n^3-32*n^2+2*(3*(-1)^n+13)*n+3*((-1)^n-1)). G.f.: 4*x^2*(2+6*x+8*x^2+3*x^3) / ((1-x)^5*(1+x)^2).
