Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,0,0,0,0,65,0,0,0,0,0,-64).

FORMULA

a(n) = M / gcd( M, 9 ), where M=2^n-1.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Aug 23 2014: (Start)

a(n) = 65*a(n-6)-64*a(n-12).

G.f.: x*(2*x^2 -x +1)*(16*x^8 +16*x^7 +28*x^6 +16*x^5 +25*x^4 +8*x^3 +7*x^2 +2*x +1) / ((x -1)*(x +1)*(2*x -1)*(2*x +1)*(x^2 -x +1)*(x^2 +x +1)*(4*x^2 -2*x +1)*(4*x^2 +2*x +1)). (End)
