Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-6,7).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + q^(n-1) = (q^n - 1) / (q - 1).

a(n) = -6*a(n-1) + 7*a(n-2). - Vincenzo Librandi, Oct 22 2012

From G. C. Greubel, May 26 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x/((1-x)*(1+7*x)).

E.g.f.: (exp(x) - exp(-7*x))/8. (End)
