Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-5,2).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) - Sum_{k=2..n-1} k*a(n-k), with a(1) = a(2) = 2, a(3) = -2.

a(n) = 2*A106540(n).

From Colin Barker, Aug 25 2016: (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2) + 2*a(n-3) for n>3.

G.f.: 2*x*(1-x)^2/(1-3*x+5*x^2-2*x^3). (End)
