Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = -8*sqrt(2)*((4-3*sqrt(2))*(3+2*sqrt(2))^n - (3-2*sqrt(2))^n*(4+3*sqrt(2))).

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

G.f.: 32*x*(1 - 3*x) / (1 - 6*x + x^2).

EXAMPLE

96 is in the sequence because (x, y) = (96,768) is a solution to y^2 = 72*x^2 - 73728.

PROG

(PARI) Vec(32*x*(1 - 3*x) / (1 - 6*x + x^2) + O(x^30))
