Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,2,-2,-1,1).

FORMULA

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Apr 13 2016: (Start)

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

a(n) = (6*(n - 1)*n - (2*n - 1)*(-1)^n + 23)/8. (End)

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3 because 3*3 - 8 = 1^2.

MAPLE

seq(seq(((3*m+k)^2+8)/3, k=1..2), m=0..50); # Robert Israel, Dec 05 2016
