FORMULA

Expansion of 9 + (eta(q) / eta(q^3))^12 in powers of q.

EXAMPLE

1/q - 3 + 54*q - 76*q^2 - 243*q^3 + 1188*q^4 - 1384*q^5 - 2916*q^6 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] :=  With[{m = n + 1}, SeriesCoefficient[ 9 q + (Product[ 1 - q^k, {k, m}] / Product[ 1 - q^k, {k, 3, m, 3}])^12, {q, 0, m}]] (* Michael Somos, Nov 08 2011 *)

QP = QPochhammer; s = 9*q+(QP[q]/QP[q^3])^12 + O[q]^30; CoefficientList[s, q] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Nov 12 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = local(A); if( n<-1, 0, n++; A = x * O(x^n); polcoeff( 9*x + (eta(x + A) / eta(x^3 + A))^12, n))} /* Michael Somos, Nov 08 2011 */
