Table of n, a(n) for n=0..39.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2, -1, 2, -4, 2, -1, 2, -1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+2*a(n-3)-4*a(n-4)+2*a(n-5)-a(n-6)+2*a(n-7)-a(n-8).

G.f.: (x + 2*x^2 + 10*x^3 + 14*x^4 + 10*x^5 + 2*x^6 + x^7)/(1 - 2*x + x^2 - 2*x^3 + 4*x^4 - 2*x^5 + x^6 - 2*x^7 + x^8). [corrected by Georg Fischer, May 03 2019]
