Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (195,-195,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 195*a(n-1)-195*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: -8*x*(3*x^2-10*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-194*x+1)).

a(n) = (6+(285-164*sqrt(3))*(97+56*sqrt(3))^n+(97+56*sqrt(3))^(-n)*(285+164*sqrt(3)))/24. - Colin Barker, Mar 02 2016

a(n) = 194*a(n-1)-a(n-2)-48. - Vincenzo Librandi, Mar 03 2016

EXAMPLE

8 is in the sequence because H(8) = 120 = 12+22+35+51 = P(3)+P(4)+P(5)+P(6).
