Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

3*A172078(n) = n*a(n) - sum(a(k), k=0..n-1). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 12 2010

REFERENCES

LINKS

Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 12*n^2 - 9*n = 3*A001107(n).

a(n) = a(n-1)+24*n-21, n>0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 26 2010

a(n) = sum(A001539(k), k=0..n-1)-sum(4*A002939(k), k=0..n-1) if n>0 (see References, Problem 1052). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 08 2010 - Jan 21 2011

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

a(0)=0, a(1)=3, a(2)=30, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, May 26 2012

EXAMPLE

For n=8, a(8)=(1*3+5*7+9*11+..+29*31)-(2*4+6*8+10*12+..+26*28) = 696 (see Problem 1052 in References). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 12 2010
