 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS For a guide to related sequences, see A211795. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,1,-4,1,2,-1). FORMULA a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)+a(n-4)+2*a(n-5)-a(n-6) for n>=1. G.f.: f(x)/g(x), where f(x)=1 + 4*x + 11*x^2 + 8*x^3 + x^4 - 4*x^5 - x^6 and g(x)=((1-x)^4)*(1+x)^2.
