COMMENTS

a(n) is also the number whose binary representation is the concatenation of n-1 1's, 0, n-1 1's and 0 (See example). [From Omar E. Pol, Mar 16 2010]

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7, -14, 8).

FORMULA

a(n)= 7*a(n-1) -14*a(n-2) +8*a(n-3) = 2*A129868(n-1). G.f.: 2*x^2*(-5+8*x)/((x-1) * (2*x-1) * (4*x-1)). [From R. J. Mathar, Feb 14 2010]

a(n) = 2*(A006516(n)-1) [From Omar E. Pol, Mar 16 2010]
