Jianing Song, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-3) + 12 for n > 2.

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n > 3.

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

a(n) = 3*A004773(n) = 3*(floor(n/3) + n).

a(n) = 4*n - 1 + sin((Pi/3)*(2*n + 1))/sin(Pi/3). - Federico Provvedi, Oct 23 2018

E.g.f.: (3*cos(sqrt(3)*x/2) + sqrt(3)*sin(sqrt(3)*x/2))/(3*exp(x/2)) - exp(x)*(1 - 4*x). - Franck Maminirina Ramaharo, Nov 27 2018
