COMMENTS

A Jacobsthal related sequence.

Inverse binomial transform of A084246.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..25.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-5,-4).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+5*x)/((1+x)*(1+4*x)).

E.g.f.: (4*exp(-x) - exp(-4*x))/3.

a(n) = A084241(n) + (-1)^n

a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*(A002450(n)-1) = (-1)^(n+1)*(A001045(2*n)-1).

a(n) = (4*(-1)^n - (-4)^n)/3.

a(n) = (-1)^(n-1) * A080674(n-1). - Falk Hüffner, Jan 11 2021
