 OFFSET 3,4 LINKS Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 3..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,2,1,-2,-2,-2,-1). FORMULA G.f.: (x^2/2)*((-x-x^2)/(x^4+2x^3+x^2-1) + (-x-x^2)/(x^4+x^2-1)). G.f.: -x^3*(x^3+x-1)*(1+x)^2 / ( (1+x+x^2)*(x^2+x-1)*(x^4+x^2-1) ). EXAMPLE a(7)=3 because there are 3 fibered rational knots with 7 crossings: 7_1, 7_6 and 7_7 (in Alexander-Briggs notation). MATHEMATICA f[x_] = -(x+1)^2*(x^3+x-1) / ((x^2+x-1)*(x^2+x+1)*(x^4+x^2-1)); CoefficientList[ Series[f[x], {x, 0, 39}], x]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 20}](* Jean-François Alcover, Nov 21 2011 *) LinearRecurrence[{0, 2, 2, 1, -2, -2, -2, -1}, {1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10}, 40] (* Harvey P.
