R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 14*a(n-2) - 30*a(n-3).

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jan 17 2019: (Start)

G.f.: 6*x*(1 - 3*x - 5*x^2) / ((1 - 5*x)*(1 - 4*x - 6*x^2)).

a(n) = (-12*5^(1+n) + (35-11*sqrt(10))*(2-sqrt(10))^n + (2+sqrt(10))^n*(35+11*sqrt(10))) / 10.

(End)
