Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2n-1 if n is 1 or an even number;

a(n) = 6n-7 if n is an odd number other than 1.

G.f.: x*(1 + 3*x + 9*x^2 + x^3 + 2*x^4)/((1+x)^2*(1-x)^2). - Klaus Brockhaus, Oct 15 2009

a(n) = 4*(n-1) - (2*n-3)*(-1)^n for n>1, a(1)=1. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 14 2011

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1;

a(2) = 2^2 - a(1) = 4 - 1 = 3;

a(3) = 3^2 + a(2) - a(1) = 9 + 3 - 1 = 11;

a(4) = 4^2 - 11 + 3 - 1 = 7;

a(5) = 25 + 7 - 11 + 3 - 1 = 23;

a(6) = 36 - 23 + 7 - 11 + 3 - 1 = 11; etc.

PROG
