COMMENTS

Joe Keane (jgk(AT)jgk.org) observes that this sequence (beginning at 3) is "size of raises in pot-limit poker, one blind, maximum raising".

It appears that this sequence is the BinomialMean transform of A001653 (see A075271). - John W. Layman, Oct 03 2002

Number of (s(0), s(1), ..., s(2n+1)) such that 0 < s(i) < 8 and |s(i) - s(i-1)| = 1 for i = 1,2,....,2n+1, s(0) = 3, s(2n+1) = 4. - Herbert Kociemba, Jun 12 2004

Equals the INVERT transform of (1, 2, 5, 13, 34, 89,...). [Gary W. Adamson, May 01 2009]

a(n) is the number of compositions of n when there are 3 types of ones. [Milan Janjic, Aug 13 2010]

a(n)/a(n-1) tends to (4 + sqrt(8))/2 = 3.414213.... Gary W. Adamson, Jul 30 2013

a(n) is the first sub-diagonal of array A228405. - Richard R. Forberg, Sep 02 2013

Number of words of length n over {0,1,2,3,4} in which binary subwords appear in the form 10...0. - Milan Janjic, Jan 25 2017

FORMULA

a(n+1) = 4a(n)-2a(n-1). G.f.: (1-x)/(1-4x+2x^2). Binomial transform of Pell numbers 1, 2, 5, 12, ... (A000129).

a(n) = A006012(n+1)/2 = A056236(n+1)/4. - Michael Somos, Mar 06 2003

a(n) = (A035344(n)+1)/2; a(n) = (2+sqrt(2))^n(1/2+sqrt(2)/4)+(2-sqrt(2))^n(1/2-sqrt(2)/4). - Paul Barry, Jul 16 2003

Second binomial transform of (1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, ...). a(n) = sum{k=1..floor(n/2), C(n, 2k)2^(n-k-1)}. - Paul Barry, Nov 22 2003

a(n) = ( (2-Sqrt(2))^(n+1)+(2+Sqrt(2))^(n+1) )/4. - Herbert Kociemba, Jun 12 2004

a(n) = both left and right terms in M^n * [1 1 1], where M = the 3X3 matrix [1 1 1 / 1 2 1 / 1 1 1]. M^n * [1 1 1] = [a(n) A007070(n) a(n)]. E.g. a(3) = 34. M^3 * [1 1 1] = [34 48 34]. (center term is A007070(3)) - Gary W. Adamson, Dec 18 2004

The i-th term of the sequence is the entry (2, 2) in the i-th power of the 2 by 2 matrix M=((1, 1), (1, 3)). - Simone Severini, Oct 15 2005

E.g.f. : exp(2x)(cosh(sqrt(2x)+sinh(sqrt(2)x)/sqrt(2) - Paul Barry, Nov 20 2003

a(n) = A007068(2*n), n>0. [R. J. Mathar, Aug 17 2009]

If p[i]=fibonacci(2i-1) and if A is the Hessenberg matrix of order n defined by: A[i,j]=p[j-i+1], (i<=j), A[i,j]=-1, (i=j+1), and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n-1)= det A. [Milan Janjic, May 08 2010]

a(n-1) = sum((-1)^k*binomial(2*n,n+4*k)/2, k=-floor(n/4)..floor(n/4)). [Mircea Merca, Jan 28 2012]

G.f.: G(0)*(1-x)/(2*x) + 1 - 1/x, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(2*k-1)/(x*(2*k+1) - (1-x)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 26 2013

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-3) + a(n-4) + ... + a(0). [Gary W. Adamson, Aug 12 2013]

a(n) = a(-2-n) * 2^(n+1) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 25 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + 3*x + 10*x^2 + 34*x^3 + 116*x^4 + 396*x^5 + 1352*x^6 + 4616*x^7 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[n_]:=(MatrixPower[{{3, 1}, {1, 1}}, n].{{2}, {1}})[[2, 1]]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 40}] (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Feb 20 2010 *)

a[ n_] := ((2 + Sqrt[2])^(n + 1) + (2 - Sqrt[2])^(n + 1)) / 4 // Simplify; (* Michael Somos, Jan 25 2017 *)

PROG
