%N a(n) = 40*a(n - 1) - a(n - 2) for n>1, a(0) = 1, a(1) = 1.

%C In general, the ordinary generating function for the recurrence relation b(n) = k*b(n - 1) - b(n - 2) with n>1 and b(0)=1, b(1)=1, is (1 - (k - 1)*x)/(1 - k*x +x^2). This recurrence gives the closed form b(n) = (2^( -n - 1)*((k - 2)*(k - sqrt(k^2 - 4))^n + sqrt(k^2 - 4)*(k - sqrt(k^2 - 4))^n - (k - 2)*(sqrt(k^2 - 4) + k)^n + sqrt(k^2 - 4)*(sqrt(k^2 - 4) + k)^n))/sqrt(k^2 - 4).
