COMMENTS

Original name: G.f.: 1/(1-6*x+25*x^2).

Suggested by Philippe Flajolet as an example of a simple formula for which the general term is hard to guess because 1-6*x+25*x^2 has 2 complex roots of equal size and modulus 1.

The Lucas sequence U_n(6,25). - Peter Bala, Feb 02 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = ((3+4*i)^n-(3-4*i)^n)/8/i, where i=sqrt(-1). - Denis Excoffier, Jan 19 2013

From Peter Bala, Feb 02 2017: (Start)

a(n) = (1/4)*( Re((2 - i)^n)*Im((2 + i)^n) - Re((2 + i)^n)*Im((2 - i)^n) ).

a(n) = (1/2) * the directed or signed area of the triangle in the complex plane with vertices at the points 0, (2 - i)^n and (2 + i)^n. (End)

a(n) = 5^n*sin(n*arctan(1/2))*cos(n*arctan(1/2))/2. - Peter Luschny, Feb 02 2017

E.g.f.: (1/4)*exp(3*x)*sin(4*x). - Stefano Spezia, Feb 01 2020
