Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,8,0,-9).

FORMULA

a(n) = 8*a(n-2) - 9*a(n-4). - Colin Barker, Jan 05 2018

a(2*n)/a(2*n-1) ~ 2*a(2*n+1)/a(2*n) ~ 1 + sqrt(7). - Kyle MacLean Smith, Oct 11 2019

PROG

(PARI) concat(0, Vec((x + 3*x^2 - 2*x^3 - 3*x^4)/(1 - 8*x^2 + 9*x^4) + O(x^40))) \\ Colin Barker, Jan 05 2018
