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

FORMULA

a(n) = -(1/3)*{(n mod 6)+[(n+1) mod 6]-[(n+3) mod 6]-[(n+4) mod 6]}, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jul 18 2007

O.g.f.: 2/(x^2-x+1). a(n) = 2*A010892(n) . - R. J. Mathar, Feb 14 2008

a(0)=2, a(1)=2, a(n)=a(n-1)-a(n-2). - Harvey P. Dale, Jan 13 2014

a(n) = A184334(n+1) if n>=0. a(n) = A109265(n-1) = A257076(n) if n>1. - Michael Somos, Sep 01 2015

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 2 + 2*x - 2*x^3 - 2*x^4 + 2*x^6 + 2*x^7 - 2*x^9 - 2*x^10 + ...
