Erich Friedman, Illustration of initial terms

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,1,-11,6,14,-14,-6,11,-1,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/48)*(n-1)*(n^5+n^4-2*n^3+14*n^2-5*n+3) if n is odd;

a(n) = (1/48)*n*(n-1)*(n^2-n+2)*(n^2+2*n-2) if n is even.

G.f.: x^2*(x^8-x^7-4*x^6-55*x^5-56*x^4-83*x^3-28*x^2-13*x-1) / ((x-1)^7*(x+1)^4). - Colin Barker, Jul 11 2013

a(n) = A054247(n, 3) = A054247(n, n^2-3), n >= 1. - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 03 2016

E.g.f.: (x*(3 + 24*x + 88*x^2 + 62*x^3 + 15*x^4 + x^5)*cosh(x) + (-3 + 39*x^2 + 80*x^3 + 62*x^4 + 15*x^5 + x^6)*sinh(x))/48. - Stefano Spezia, Apr 14 2022
