COMMENTS

The compositions of n in which each positive integer is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n>=2, 12*a(n-2) equals the number of 12-colored compositions of n, with all parts >= 2, such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 26 2011

FORMULA

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

a(n-1) = (1/3)*(-1)^n*Sum_{i=0..n} (-3)^i*Fibonacci(i)*C(n, i). - Benoit Cloitre, Mar 06 2004

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A109466(n,k)*(-11)^(n-k). - Philippe Deléham, Oct 26 2008

G.f.: 1/(1 - x - 11*x^2). - Harvey P. Dale, May 08 2011

a(n) = ( Sum_{1<=k<=n+1, k odd} C(n+1,k)*45^((k-1)/2) )/2^n. - Vladimir Shevelev, Feb 05 2014
