Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..503

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (99,-99,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = A046173(n)-1.

a(n) = 99*a(n-1)-99*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: 2*x^2*(x-49) / ((x-1)*(x^2-98*x+1)).

a(n) = 2*(-1/2+1/48*(49+20*sqrt(6))^(-n)*(-12-5*sqrt(6)+(-12+5*sqrt(6))*(49+20*sqrt(6))^(2*n))). - Colin Barker, Mar 03 2016

EXAMPLE

98 is in the sequence because T(98)+T(99) = 4851+4950 = 9801 = P(81).
