FORMULA

G.f.: (3 - 4*x) / (1 - 11*x - x^2). - Corrected by Colin Barker, Apr 22 2017

a(n) = Lucas(5*n+2). - Thomas Baruchel, Nov 26 2003

From Colin Barker, Apr 22 2017: (Start)

a(n) = (((11-5*sqrt(5))/2)^n*(-5+3*sqrt(5)) + (5+3*sqrt(5))*((11+5*sqrt(5))/2)^n) / (2*sqrt(5)).

a(n) = 11*a(n-1) + a(n-2) for n>1.

(End)
