FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1 - 443*x + x^2).

a(n) = S(n, 443)=U(n, 443/2)= S(2*n+1, sqrt(445))/sqrt(445) with S(n, x)=U(n, x/2) Chebyshev's polynomials of the second kind, A049310. S(-1, x)= 0 = U(-1, x).

a(n) = 443*a(n-1)-a(n-2) for n >= 1, a(0)=1, a(1)=443, and a(-1):=0.

a(n) = (ap^(n+1) - am^(n+1))/(ap - am) with ap:=(443 + 21*sqrt(445))/2 and am:=(443 - 21*sqrt(445))/2 = 1/ap.
