Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,1,0,1,1).

FORMULA

Satisfies the same recurrence as A164387 and A079976, although with different initial conditions.

From Colin Barker, Jul 25 2013: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>5.

G.f.: -(x+1)*(x^4+x^3+1) / (x^5+x^4+x^2+x-1). (End)
