G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/2)*(n^3 - 6*n^2 + 13*n - 6).

G.f.: x*(1 - 2*x + x^2 + 3*x^3) / (1-x)^4.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4). - G. C. Greubel, Feb 19 2017
