FORMULA

G.f.: x(1+15x)/(1+14x+x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 16 2008 [Corrected by Richard Choulet, Nov 21 2008]

a(n) = (1/3)*sqrt(3)*[ -7+4*sqrt(3)]^n-(1/3)*sqrt(3)*[ -7-4*sqrt(3)]^n+(1/2)*[ -7-4*sqrt(3)]^n+(1 /2)*[ -7+4*sqrt(3)]^n. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 19 2008

a(n) = ((3+2*sqrt(3))/6)*(-7+4*sqrt(3))^(n-1)+((3-2*sqrt(3))/6)*(-7-4*sqrt(3))^(n-1) (n>=1). - Richard Choulet, Nov 21 2008

a(n) = (-1)^n*A028230(n-1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 19 2009

a(n) = b such that (-1)^(2*n-3)*Integral_{x=0..Pi/2} cos((2*n-3)*x)/(2+sin(x)) dx = c + b*(log(2)-log(3)). - Francesco Daddi, Aug 01 2011
