Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Silver Ratio

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,0,-4,1,1).

FORMULA

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

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-3) + a(n-4) + a(n-5).

a(n) = (4*(1 + sqrt(2))^n + 2*sqrt(2)*(1 + sqrt(2))^n - 2*(-2 + sqrt(2))*(1 - sqrt(2))^n + 2*n - (-1)^n - 3)/4.

a(n) ~ s^(n+1)/(s-1), where s is the silver ratio (A014176).
