COMMENTS

Same as Pisot sequences E(1,8), L(1,8), P(1,8), T(1,8). See A008776 for definitions of Pisot sequences.

If X_1, X_2, ..., X_n is a partition of the set {1..2n} into blocks of size 2 then, for n>=1, a(n) is equal to the number of functions f : {1..2n} -> {1,2,3} such that for fixed y_1,y_2,...,y_n in {1,2,3} we have f(X_i)<>{y_i}, (i=1..n). - Milan Janjic, May 24 2007

1/1 + 1/8 + 1/64 + 1/512 + 1/4096 + ... = 8/7. - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 29 2008

a(n) = A157176(A008588(n)); a(n+1) = A157176(A016969(n)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 24 2009

This is the auto-convolution (convolution square) of A059304. - R. J. Mathar, May 25 2009

The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of 8-colored compositions of n such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 17 2011

a(n) = the determinant of a 3 X 3 matrix with rows 2^(n+2), 2^(n+1), 2^n; 2^(n+3), 2^(n+4), 2(n+3); 2^n, 2^(n+1), 2^(n+2) when it is divided by 144. - J. M. Bergot, May 07 2014
