Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + a(n-3) - a(n-4) (holds at least up to n = 1000 but is not known to hold in general).

Note the warning in A010925 from Pab Ter (pabrlos(AT)yahoo.com), May 23 2004: [A010925] and other examples show that it is essential to reject conjectured generating functions for Pisot sequences until a proof or reference is provided. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 26 2016
