COMMENTS

This is the column k=2 sequence of the Riordan triangle A248156 without the leading two zeros.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..41.

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

FORMULA

O.g.f.: (1 - 2*x^2)/(1 + x)^4 = -1/(1 + x)^4 + 4/(1 + x)^3 -2/(1 + x)^2.

a(n) = (-1)^n*(n+1)*(6 + 7*n - n^2)/3!, n >= 0.

a(n) = -4*(a(n-1) + a(n-3)) - 6*a(n-2) - a(n-4), n >= 4, with a(0) =1, a(1) = -4, a(2) = 8 and a(3) = -12.

a(n)+a(n+1) = A248158(n+1). - R. J. Mathar, Mar 13 2021
