Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

The Knot Atlas, L6a1

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,-3,2,-1,2,-1).

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(x^(9/2)*f(x)), where f(x) = -x^(3/2) + 2*x^(1/2) - 1/x^(1/2) + 2/x^(3/2) - 3/x^(5/2) + 1/x^(7/2) - 1/x^(9/2) is the Jones Polynomial for the link with Dowker-Thistlethwaite notation L6a1.

a(n) = a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + 2*a(n-5) - a(n-6), n >= 6. - Franck Maminirina Ramaharo, Jan 08 2019
