Table of n, a(n) for n=0..12.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (99,-99,1)

FORMULA

a(n) = 99*a(n-1) - 99*a(n-2) + a(n-3), n > 2.

Binet formula: a(n) = -1/2 + (1/4)(49 + 20*sqrt(6))^n + (1/4)(49 - 20*sqrt(6))^n.

a(n) = 24*A108741(n).

From R. J. Mathar, Aug 23 2012: (Start)

G.f.: -24*x*(1+x) / ( (x-1)*(x^2-98*x+1) ).

a(n) = A132596(2n). (End)
