Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 5*n = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) = A166151(n)-1.

O.g.f.: x*(-1 - 8*x + 4*x^2)/(x - 1)^3. [corrected by Georg Fischer, May 11 2019]

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(-8 + 10*x + 5*x^2)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Apr 26 2016
