COMMENTS

Binet form: with a = 4/(1 + sqrt(3)); b = 4/(1 - sqrt(3)); we have a(n)=(a^n - b^n)/(a - b).

Alternative expressions for the roots are -2 +- 2*sqrt(3).

Limiting ratio a(n+1)/a(n) is:-5.464101615137755== -2-2*sqrt(3).

FORMULA

a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(n) = -4a(n-1) + 8a(n-2).

a(0)=0, a(n) = (-2)^(n-1)*A002605(n).

MATHEMATICA

a = 4/(1 + Sqrt[3]); b = 4/(1 - Sqrt[3]);

f[n_] = (a^n - b^n)/(a - b);
