Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2, 0, -2, 1).

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jan 03 2015: (Start)

a(n) = (27 - 3*(-1)^n - 28*n + 6*n^2)/8 for n>5.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-3) + a(n-4) for n>6.

G.f.: -x^4*(2*x^5 - 4*x^4 + 3*x^2 + x + 1) / ((x-1)^3*(x+1)).

(End)
