 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Previous name was: One half of second column (m=1) of triangle A142963. Essentially a duplicate of A050488. - Johannes W. Meijer, Feb 20 2009 REFERENCES Eric Billault, Walter Damin, Robert Ferréol, Rodolphe Garin, MPSI Classes Prépas - Khôlles de Maths, Exercices corrigés, Ellipses, 2012, exercice 2.22 (1)  pp 26, 43-44. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-5,2). FORMULA a(n) = A142693(n+2,1)/2. From Johannes W. Meijer, Feb 20 2009: (Start) a(n) = 4a(n-1) - 5a(n-2) + 2a(n-3) for n > 2 with a(0) = 1, a(1) = 5, a(2) = 15. G.f.: (1+z)/((1-z)^2*(1-2*z)). (End) a(n) = Sum_{i=0..n} Sum_{j=0..n} 2^min(i,j) (Billault et al) (compare with A339771 that has max instead of min). - Bernard Schott, Dec 16 2020 a(n) = 2*A066524(n+1) - A339771(n). - Kevin Ryde, Dec 17 2020 E.g.f.: 6*exp(2*x) - exp(x)*(5 + 2*x). - Stefano Spezia, Dec 17 2020 EXAMPLE a(3) = 6*2^3 - 2*3 - 5 = 37. MAPLE seq(6*2^n-2*n-5, n=0..40); # Bernard Schott, Dec 16 2020 PROG (PARI) Vec((1+z)/((1-z)^2*(1-2*z)) + O(z^50)) \\ Michel Marcus, Jun 18 2017 CROSSREFS Cf. A142965 (m=2 column/4). Equals A050488(n+1). Equals A156920(n+1,1). Equals A156919(n+1,1)/2^n. Cf. A156925, A339771. Partial sums of A033484.
