1,1

COMMENTS

The corresponding values of y are given by a(n+2).

LINKS

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,5,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-2)-a(n-4).

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

EXAMPLE

3 is in the sequence because (x, y) = (3, 13) is a solution to x^2 - 5xy + y^2 + 17 = 0.

PROG

(PARI) Vec(-x*(x-1)*(x+2)*(2*x+1)/(x^4-5*x^2+1) + O(x^100))
