Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(n)/a(n-1) -> (1 + sqrt(5))/2 = golden ratio (A001622), so that a( ) has the growth rate of the Fibonacci numbers (A000045).

Therefore the terms are all >= 0. - Georg Fischer, Feb 19 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) - 2*a(n-4), where a(0) = 0, a(1) = 0, a(2) = 2, a(3) = 1. [Corrected by Colin Barker, Dec 15 2017]

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

From Colin Barker, Dec 15 2017: (Start)

a(n) = -2^((n-3)/2+3/2) + ((1-sqrt(5))/2)^(n+1) + (2/(1+sqrt(5)))^(-n-1) for n even.

a(n) = -3*2^((n-3)/2+1) + ((1-sqrt(5))/2)^(n+1) + (2/(1+sqrt(5)))^(-n-1) for n odd.

(End)
