LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..20.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,1,-14).

FORMULA

For n>2, a(n) = 8*a(n-1) + a(n-2) - 14*a(n-3), a(0)=1, a(1)=9, a(2)=71, a(3)=561.

G.f.: (1 + x - 2 x^2 - 2 x^3)/(1 - 8 x - x^2 + 14 x^3).

EXAMPLE

For n=2 the a(2) = 81 - 10 = 71 sequences contain every combination except these ten: 04,40,15,51,26,62,37,73,48,84.
