Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,18,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = ((-2-r)^n*(r-5) + (5+r)*(r-2)^n + (15+7*r)*(r+2)^n + (2-r)^n*(7*r-15)) / (4*r) where r=sqrt(5).

a(n) = 18*a(n-2) - a(n-4) for n>3.

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

EXAMPLE

56 is in the sequence because 56^2 = 3136 = 5*25^2+11.
