Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (6*n + 5*(-1)^n + 3)/2. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 10 2009

G.f.: -x*(-2-8*x+4*x^2)/((1+x)*(x-1)^2). - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 13 2013

From G. C. Greubel, May 16 2016:(Start)

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(3*(1 + 2*x)*exp(x) + 5*exp(-x) - 8).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3). (End)

a(n) = 2*A166517(n). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 29 2016
