COMMENTS

Cf. property described by Gary Detlefs in A113801: more generally, these numbers are of the form (2*h*n+(h-4)*(-1)^n-h)/4 (h, n natural numbers), therefore ((2*h*n+(h-4)*(-1)^n-h)/4)^2-1==0 (mod h); in this case, a(n)^2-1==0 (mod 15).

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

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+13*x+x^2)/((1+x)*(1-x)^2).

a(n) = (30*n+11*(-1)^n-15)/4.

a(n) = -a(-n+1) = a(n-1)+a(n-2)-a(n-3).

a(n) = 15*A000217(n-1) -2*sum(a(i), i=1..n-1) +1 for n>1.

a(n) = A047209(A047225(n+1)).
