COMMENTS

This sequence is part of a solution of a more general problem involving 2 equations, three sequences a(n), b(n), c(n) and a constant A:

    A    * c(n)+1 = a(n)^2,

   (A+1) * c(n)+1 = b(n)^2, for details see comment in A157014.

A157879 is the c(n) sequence for A=7.

FORMULA

G.f.: 120*x^2/(-x^3+899*x^2-899*x+1).

c(1) = 0, c(2) = 120, c(3) = 899*c(2), c(n) = 899 * (c(n-1)-c(n-2)) + c(n-3) for n>3.

a(n) = -((449+120*sqrt(14))^(-n)*(-1+(449+120*sqrt(14))^n)*(15+4*sqrt(14)+(-15+4*sqrt(14))*(449+120*sqrt(14))^n))/224. - Colin Barker, Jul 25 2016
