Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,5,-5).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6*5^((n-1)/2)-2 (n odd), 2*5^(n/2)-2 (n even).

a(1)=4, a(2)=8, a(3)=28, a(n)=a(n-1)+5*a(n-2)-5*a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, May 30 2012

G.f.: 4*x*(x+1) / ((x-1)*(5*x^2-1)). - Colin Barker, Apr 26 2015

a(n) = 4*A238366(n-1). - Michel Marcus, Apr 26 2015
