COMMENTS

lim_{n -> infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = -4. [From Klaus Brockhaus, Sep 26 2009]

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..24.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+7x)/(1+3x-4x^2). a(n)= Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n} A112555(n,k)*3^(n-k). a(0)=1, a(1)=4, a(n)=4*a(n-2)-3*a(n-1).

a(n) = (8-3*(-4)^n)/5. [From Klaus Brockhaus and Paolo P. Lava, Sep 26 2009]
