COMMENTS

a(n) is a fifth-order linear recurrence whose main interest is that it is related to (at least) eight other sequences (see the formula section).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..50.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (n + 1)*(n - 1 + (n mod 2)).

a(n) = n * A109613(n-1) for n>0.

a(n) = -A114285(n) * A109613(n).

a(n) = A002378(n) - A193356(n).

a(n) = A289296(-n).

a(n) = n^2 - (-1)^n * A093178(n).

a(2*k) = A000466(k).

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

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := (n + 1)(n - 1 + Mod[n, 2]); Table[a[n], {n, 0, 50}]
