Main diagonal of the array: m(1,j)=3^(j-1), m(i,1)=1; m(i,j) = m(i-1,j) + m(i,j-1): 1 3 9 27 81 ... / 1 4 13 40 ... / 1 5 18 58 ... / 1 6 24 82 ... - Benoit Cloitre, Aug 05 2002

a(n) is also the number of 3 X n matrices of integers for which the upper-left hand corner is a 1, the rows and columns are weakly increasing, and two adjacent entries differ by at most 1. - Richard Stanley, Jun 06 2010

a(n) is the number of compositions of n when there are 4 types of 1 and 2 types of other natural numbers. - Milan Janjic, Aug 13 2010

If a Stern's sequence based enumeration system of positive irreducible fractions is considered (for example, A007305/A047679, or A162909/A162910, or A071766/A229742, or A245325/A245326, ...), and if it is organized by blocks or levels (n) with 2^n terms (n>=0), and the products numerator*denominator, term by term, are summed at each level n, then the resulting sequence of integers is a(n). - Yosu Yurramendi, May 23 2015

Number of 1’s in the substitution system {0 -> 110, 1 -> 11110} at step n from initial string "1" (1 -> 11110 -> 11110111101111011110110 -> ...) . - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Apr 10 2017

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x)/(1-5*x+2*x^2).

a(n) = Sum_{alpha=RootOf(1 - 5*z + 2*z^2)} (1/17)*(3+alpha)*alpha^(-1-n).

a(n) = ((17+3*sqrt(17))/34)*((5+sqrt(17))/2)^n + ((17-3*sqrt(17))/34)*((5-sqrt(17))/2)^n. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 03 2002

a(n) = A107839(n) - A107839(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, May 21 2015

a(n) = 2*A020698(n-1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 23 2015

E.g.f.: (1/17)*exp(5*x/2)*(17*cosh(sqrt(17)*x/2) + 3*sqrt(17)*sinh(sqrt(17)*x/2)). - Stefano Spezia, Oct 16 2019

a(n) = 3*A107839(n-1) + (-1)^n*A152594(n) with A107839(-1) = 0. - Klaus Purath, Jul 29 2020
