%N Generating function x/(1+4*x-8*x^2).

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

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

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

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

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

%t a = 4/(1 + Sqrt); b = 4/(1 - Sqrt);

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