Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..326

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1155,-1155,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 1155*a(n-1)-1155*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: -8*x*(7*x+41) / ((x-1)*(x^2-1154*x+1)).

a(n) = (-4 - (sqrt(2)-2)*(577+408*sqrt(2))^(-n) + (sqrt(2)+2)*(577+408*sqrt(2))^n) / 12. - Colin Barker, May 30 2017

EXAMPLE

328 is in the sequence because P(328)+P(329) = 161212+162197 = 323409 = 161008+162401 = N(232)+N(233).
