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

FORMULA

a(n) = A168230(n+1) for n >= 3.

From Colin Barker, Jan 29 2018: (Start)

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

a(n) = n/2 for n>2 and even.

a(n) = (n+7)/2 for n>2 and odd.

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3) for n>5.

(End)
