Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3); a(0)=0, a(1)=81, a(2)=324. - Harvey P. Dale, Nov 06 2012

G.f.: -81*x*(1+x) / (x-1)^3. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 17 2014

From Amiram Eldar, Jan 25 2021: (Start)

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = Pi^2/486.

Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/a(n) = Pi^2/972.

Product_{n>=1} (1 + 1/a(n)) = sinh(Pi/9)/(Pi/9).

Product_{n>=1} (1 - 1/a(n)) = sin(Pi/9)/(Pi/9). (End)
