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

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,1,-2).

FORMULA

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

E.g.f.: (9*exp(x) - 4*exp(2*x) - 5*exp(-x))/6.

a(n) = (9 - 2^(n+2) - 5*(-1)^n)/6.

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

a(2*n) = -A000975(2*n); a(2*n+1) = 2 - A000975(2*n+1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3), with a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=-2. - Harvey P. Dale, Jun 08 2014
