Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..550

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,15,0,-32,0,15,0,-1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (x-1)*(1+x)*(x^4+x^3-6*x^2+x+1) / (-x^8+15*x^6-32*x^4+15*x^2-1).

MAPLE

a:= n-> (<<0|1|0|0>, <0|0|1|0>, <0|0|0|1>, <-1|15|-32|15>>^iquo(n, 2, 'r').

        `if`(r=0, <<8, 1, 1, 8>>, <<1, 0, 1, 15>>))[3, 1]:

seq(a(n), n=0..30);

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Product[2(2+Cos[2 j Pi/(n+1)]+Cos[k Pi/3]), {k, 1, 2}, {j, 1, n/2} ] // Round;

Table[a[n], {n, 0, 24}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Aug 19 2018, after A099390 *)

CROSSREFS

5th row of array A189006.

Bisections give: A003775 (even part), A006238 (odd part).

Sequence in context: A275246 A177199 A177165 * A110294 A110459 A132374
