G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,-12).

FORMULA

G.f.: 4*x/((1-2*x)*(1-6*x)).

a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 12*a(n-2).

a(n) = 2^n*(3^n - 1) = A000079(n) * A024023(n).

E.g.f.: exp(6*x) - exp(2*x) = 2*exp(4*x)*sinh(2*x). - G. C. Greubel, Feb 09 2021
