COMMENTS

Interleaving of A010701 and -A007395.

Binomial transform of 3 followed by a signed version of A020714.

Inverse binomial transform of 3 followed by A000079.

A084964 without first two terms gives partial sums.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..84.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (-5*(-1)^n + 1)/2.

a(n+1) - a(n) = 5*(-1)^n.

a(n) = -a(n-1) + 1 for n > 1; a(1) = 3.

a(n) = a(n-2) for n > 2; a(1) = 3, a(2) = -2.

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

a(n) = A049071(n). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 25 2009

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(1 - exp(-x))*(5 + exp(x)). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 18 2016
