Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (17,-101,247,-210).

FORMULA

a(n) = 7^n - 5^n + 3^n + 2^n.

From Vincenzo Librandi, May 22 2014: (Start)

G.f.: 1/(1-7*x) - 1/(1-5*x) + 1/(1-3*x) + 1/(1-2*x).

a(n) = 17*a(n-1) - 101*a(n-2) + 247*a(n-3) - 210*a(n-4) for n>3. (End)

E.g.f.: exp(7*x) - exp(5*x) + exp(3*x) + exp(2*x). - G. C. Greubel, Sep 30 2016

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 1873 because 7^4 = 2401, 5^4 = 625, 3^4 = 81, 2^4 = 16 and 2401-625+81+16 = 1873.
