Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

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

FORMULA

a(n) > n^2.

From Colin Barker, May 05 2017: (Start)

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

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

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

(End)

EXAMPLE

n=2: (1*3*5*7)/(2*4*6*8)=(1*1*5*7)/(2*4*2*8) => a(2)=5=A151800(2^2);

n=3: (1*3*5*7*9*11*13*15*17)/(2*4*6*8*10*12*14*16*18)=(1*1*1*1*1*11*13*15*17)/(2*4*2*8*2*12*2*16*2) => a(3)=11=A151800(3^2).
