Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

a(n) is a fifth-order linear recurrence whose main interest is that it is related to (at least) eight other sequences (see the formula section).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..50.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (n + 1)*(n - 1 + (n mod 2)).

a(n) = n * A109613(n-1) for n>0.

a(n) = -A114285(n) * A109613(n).

a(n) = A002378(n) - A193356(n).

a(n) = A289296(-n).

a(n) = n^2 - (-1)^n * A093178(n).

a(2*k) = A000466(k).

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

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := (n + 1)(n - 1 + Mod[n, 2]); Table[a[n], {n, 0, 50}]
