LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,1,-2). FORMULA a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3), n>2. a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) + 2, a(0)=1, a(1)=2. G.f.: (1+x^2)/((1+x)*(1-x)*(1-2*x)). E.g.f.: 5*exp(2*x)/3 - exp(x) + exp(-x)/3. a(n+1) = A000975(n+2) + A000975(n). a(2*n+1) - 2 = 10*A000975(n). a(2*n+2) - 6 = 20*A000975(n). a(n+2*k) - a(n) = 5*A002450(k)*2^n = A146882(k-1)*2^n, k >= 0. - Paul Curtz, Jun 15 2011 From Yosu Yurramendi, Jul 05 2016: (Start) a(n) = A169969(2n) - 1, n >= 1; a(n) = 3*2^(n-1) - 1 + A169969(2n-7), n >= 5. a(n+3) = 15*2^n - 2 - a(n), n >= 0, a(0)=1, a(1)=2, a(2)=6. a(n) + A026644(n) = 3*2^n - 2, n >= 1. a(n+3) = 3*2^(n+2) + A026644(n), n >= 1.
