Table of n, a(n) for n=0..42.

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

FORMULA

For n >= 4, a(n) = -4*a(n-4).

a(n) = (-1)^n*A137444(n) = A108520(n) - 2*A108520(n-1).

G.f.: (1-2*x)/(1 + 2*x + 2*x^2).

a(n) = (1/2 + 3*i/2)*(-1 + i)^n + (1/2 - 3*i/2)*(-1 - i)^n, n >= 0, where i=sqrt(-1). - Taras Goy, Apr 20 2019
