 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Inverse binomial transform of (1,1,5,5,25,25,.....). The absolute values are the constant terms of the reduction by x^2->x+1 of the polynomial p(n,x) given for d=sqrt(x+1) by p(n,x)=((x+d)^n-(x-d)^n)/(2d), for n>=1.  The coefficient of x under this reduction is given by A103435.  See A192232 for a discussion of reduction. - Clark Kimberling, Jun 29 2011 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-2,4). FORMULA G.f.: (1+2*x)/((1+(1+sqrt(5))*x)(1+(1-sqrt(5))*x)) = ( -1-2*x ) / ( -1-2*x+4*x^2 ). E.g.f.: exp(-x)*(cosh(sqrt(5)*x)+sinh(sqrt(5)*x)/sqrt(5)). a(n)=(sqrt(5)-1)^n*(sqrt(5)/10+1/2)+(-sqrt(5)-1)^n*(1/2-sqrt(5)/10). (-1)^n*a(n) = A063727(n) - 2*A063727(n-1). - R. J.
