LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..22.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7, -8, -6, 6).

FORMULA

For n>4, a(n) =  7*a(n-1) - 8*a(n-2) - 6*a(n-3) + 6*a(n-4), a(1)=7, a(2)=37, a(3)=197, a(4)=1049.

G.f.: (1-4*x^2+2*x^4)/(1-7*x+8*x^2+6*x^3-6*x^4).

EXAMPLE

For n=2 the a(2)=37=49-12 sequences contain every combination except these twelve: 01,10,12,21,23,32,34,43,45,54,56,65.
