Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (99,-99,1).

FORMULA

General formula: cosh((2*n-1)*arcsinh(sqrt(2)))^2 + cos((2*n-1)*arcsin(sqrt(3))^2 = 1.

a(n) = A146313(n) - 1.

a(n) = 99*a(n-1) - 99*a(n-2) + a(n-3). - Colin Barker, Oct 26 2014

G.f.: -2*x*(x^2+22*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-98*x+1)). - Colin Barker, Oct 26 2014

a(n) = 2*A054320(n-1)^2. - Jon E. Schoenfield, Jun 08 2018
