Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..500

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (40,-89,220).

FORMULA

G.f.: (20*x^3-25*x^2+16*x-1)/(220*x^3-89*x^2+40*x-1).

a(n) = 40*a(n-1) -89*a(n-2) +220*a(n-3) for n>3, a(0)=1, a(1)=24, a(2)=896, a(3)=33904.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 4! = 24.

MAPLE

a:= n-> ceil((<<0|1|0>, <0|0|1>, <220|-89|40>>^n.

        <<10/11, 24, 896>>)[1, 1]):

seq(a(n), n=0..25);
