Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-4,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (2-6*x+4*x^2-x^3)/((1-x)*(1-3*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) + a(n-3), with a(0)=2, a(1)=2, a(2)=4, a(3)=9.

a(n) = 1 + Sum_{alpha=RootOf(1-3*z+z^2)} (1/5)*(2-3*alpha)*alpha^(-1-n).

MAPLE

spec:=[S, {S=Union(Sequence(Z), Sequence(Prod(Sequence(Z), Sequence(Z), Z) ))}, unlabeled]: seq(combstruct[count](spec, size=n), n=0..20);
