 OFFSET 0,1 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..18. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (31,-310,1240,-1984,1024). FORMULA a(n) = (2^n - 1)^4 - 2. G.f.: (1984*x^4-2120*x^3+510*x^2-61*x+2) / ((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(4*x-1)*(8*x-1)*(16*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Apr 30 2013 EXAMPLE a(0) = (2^0 - 1)^4 - 2 = 0^4 - 2 = -2. a(1) = (2^1 - 1)^4 - 2 = 1^4 - 2 = -1. a(2) = (2^2 - 1)^4 - 2 = 3^4 - 2 = 79.
