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

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1,0,1,-2,1)

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/16)*(2n^2 + 9 - 5(-1)^n - 2(-1)^floor(n/2) + 2(-1)^floor((n-1)/2)). - Ralf Stephan, Jun 10 2005

G.f.: -x*(1-x-x^3+x^2+x^4) / ( (1+x)*(1+x^2)*(x-1)^3 ). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 22 2011

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5) + a(n-6); a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=1, a(3)=2, a(4)=2, a(5)=4. - Harvey P. Dale, Jun 21 2011
