LINKS

R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 5*a(n-1) + 8*a(n-2).

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Apr 04 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 2*x*(25 + 32*x) / (1 - 5*x - 8*x^2).

a(n) = (2^(1-n)*((5-sqrt(57))^n*(-15+2*sqrt(57)) + (5+sqrt(57))^n*(15+2*sqrt(57)))) / sqrt(57).

(End)
