Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1, 3, 1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3), n >= 3; G.f. (x-1)/((x+1)*(x^2+2*x-1)); a(n) = (sqrt(2)/4)*((1 + sqrt(2))^n - (1 - sqrt(2))^n)) + (-1)^n;

G.f.: G(0)/(2+2*x), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - (x)*(2*k-1)/((x)*(2*k+1) - 1/G(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 10 2013
