Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-3).

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 8, with n>0, a(0)=5.

G.f.: (5 - 13*x)/((1-x)*(1-3 x)). - Vincenzo Librandi, May 13 2014

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) for n>1. - Vincenzo Librandi, May 13 2014

E.g.f.: exp(3*x) + 4*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 27 2016

EXAMPLE

a(1)=3*5-8=7; a(2)=3*7-8=13; a(3)=3*13-8=31.
