 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”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 2,1 LINKS R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..100 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,-16). FORMULA a(n) = (copies*n)*(copies+1)^(n-2), here: copies = 3. Conjectures from Colin Barker, Mar 23 2018: (Start) G.f.: 6*x*(1 - 2*x) / (1 - 4*x)^2. a(n) = 3*4^(n-1)*(n+1). a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 16*a(n-2) for n>3. (End) E.g.f.: 3*x*exp(4*x)/4. - G. C. Greubel, Jun 01 2018 From Amiram Eldar, May 16 2022: (Start) Sum_{n>=2} 1/a(n) = (16/3)*log(4/3) - 3/2. Sum_{n>=2} (-1)^n/a(n) = (16/3)*log(5/4) - 7/6.
