Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (6*n^2+2*n-11+(2*n-5)*(-1)^n)/16+0^n.

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n-1} (3*i+2)/4+(2-i)*(-1)^i/4.

From Robert Israel, May 19 2015: (Start)

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

E.g.f.: 1 + exp(x)*(6*x^2+8*x-11)/16 - exp(-x)*(2*x+5)/16.

a(n) = a(n-1)+2*a(n-2)-2*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5) for n >= 6. (End)

From Bruno Berselli, May 20 2015: (Start)

a(n) = a(-n) for n odd, a(n) = a(-n)+n/2 otherwise.

a(n) = (floor(n/2)+1)*(floor(n/2)+2*floor((n-1)/2))/2 for n>0. Therefore, after 3, all terms of the sequence are composite. (End)

a(n) = Sum_{i=floor((n-1)/2)..n-1} i, for n>0. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 11 2016
