This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

%N 18k^2-36k+9 interleaved with 18k^2-18k+9 for k>=0.

%C The sequence is present as a family of single interleaved sequence of which there are many which are separated or factored out to give individual sequences. The larger sequence produces two smaller interleaved sequences where one of them has the formulas above and the other interleaved sequence has the formulas (18n^2-24n+1) and (18n^2-6n+5). The latter interleaved sequence is A214493. There are three sequences in this family.

%F From _Bruno Berselli_, Oct 01 2012: (Start)

%F G.f.: 9*(1-x-3*x^2+5*x^3)/((1+x)*(1-x)^3).

%F a(n) = (9/4)*(2*n*(n-4)-3*(-1)^n+7).

%F a(n) = 9*A178218(n-3) with A178218(-3)=1, A178218(-2)=1, A178218(-1)=-1, A178218(0)=1. (End)

%F a(0)=9, a(1)=9, a(2)=-9, a(3)=9, a(n)=2*a(n-1)-2*a(n-3)+a(n-4). - _Harvey P. Dale_, Apr 26 2014
