Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (63,-63,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 63*a(n-1)-63*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: 2*x*(7*x-47) / ((x-1)*(x^2-62*x+1)).

a(n) = 2*(-2/3+1/240*(31+8*sqrt(15))^(-n)*(80-27*sqrt(15)+(31+8*sqrt(15))^(2*n)*(80+27*sqrt(15)))). - Colin Barker, Mar 03 2016

EXAMPLE

94 is in the sequence because P(94)+P(95)+P(96)+P(97) = 13207+13490+13776+14065 = 54538 = H(148).
