R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) for n>3.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Sep 13 2018: (Start)

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

a(n) = -(2^(1-n)*((-11+sqrt(13))*(5+sqrt(13))^n + (5-sqrt(13))^n*(11+sqrt(13)))) / (9*sqrt(13)) for n>1.

(End)
