Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,13,-7,-61,12,128,0,-128,-12,61,7,-13,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = product(13-14*cos(2*(2*j-1)*Pi/n)+2*cos(4*(2*j-1)*Pi/n), j=1..floor(n/2)).

a(n) = a(n-1)+13*a(n-2)-7*a(n-3)-61*a(n-4)+12*a(n-5)+128*a(n-6)-128*a(n-8) -12*a(n-9)+61*a(n-10)+7*a(n-11)-13*a(n-12)-a(n-13)+a(n-14).

a(n) ~ ((1 + sqrt(29) + sqrt(14+2*sqrt(29)))/4)^n. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Dec 13 2014
