Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,10,-20,-25)

FORMULA

G.f.: -(1/12)/(5*t-1) + (5/12)/(t+1) - (1/2)/(5*t^2-1).

a(n) = (5^n + (-1)^n*5 + 3*(1 + (-1)^n)*sqrt(5)^n)/12.

a(n+1) = 5 * A030517(n) for n > 0.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) + 10*a(n-2) - 20*a(n-3) - 25*a(n-4). - François Marques, Jul 10 2021
