Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,322,-322,-1,1).

FORMULA

Let b(n)=A077259(n) then a(n)=b(n)*(b(n)+1)/2.

a(n) = (A000045(A007310(n+1))^2-1)/8. - Vladeta Jovovic, Nov 02 2002. - Definition corrected by R. J. Mathar, Sep 16 2009

G.f.: (-3*x*(x^2+6*x+1))/((x-1)*(x^2-18*x+1)*(x^2+18*x+1)). - Maksym Voznyy (voznyy(AT)mail.ru), Jul 27 2009

a(n) = 322*a(n-2) - a(n-4) + 24. - Vladimir Pletser, Mar 23 2020

EXAMPLE

Since b(3)=44 -> a(3)=44*45/2=990.

PROG

(PARI) concat(0, Vec(-3*x*(x^2+6*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-18*x+1)*(x^2+18*x+1)) + O(x^100))) \\ Colin Barker, May 15 2015
