LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..50.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,4,0,-6,0,4,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^2+1)^3 - (round(sqrt((n^2+1)^3))^2.

Recurrence formula: a(n)= - a(n-2) + 4*a(n-4) - 6*a(n-6) + 4*a(n-8).

a(n) = -A077119(n^2+1). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 18 2021

a(2*n) = A056107(n). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 18 2021
