Table of n, a(n) for n=0..17.

Tanya Khovanova, Recursive Sequences

Index entries for recurrences a(n) = k*a(n - 1) +/- a(n - 2)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (20,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = p^n + q^n, where p = 10 + 3sqrt(11) and q = 10 - 3sqrt(11). - Tanya Khovanova, Feb 06 2007

G.f.: (2-20*x)/(1-20*x+x^2). [From Philippe Deléham, Nov 02 2008]
