Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (34,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 34*a(n-1)+a(n-2) for n>1, a(0)=17, a(1)=579. G.f.: (17+x)/(1-34*x-x^2). [Philippe Deléham, Nov 23 2008]

a(n) = (17/2)*((17+sqrt(290))^n+(17-sqrt(290))^n)+(1/2)*sqrt(290)*((17+sqrt(290))^n-(17-sqrt(290))^n) = (r^(n+1)+1/(-r)^(n+1))/2, where r=(17+sqrt(290)). [Paolo P. Lava, Nov 28 2008; simplified by Bruno Berselli, Nov 04 2013]
