%C Conjecture: Let M be any endomorphism on any vector space, such that M^3 = 1 (identity). Then (1-M)^n = A057681(n)-A057682(n)*M+z(n)*M^2, where z(0)=z(1)=0 and, apparently, z(n+2)=a(n). - Stanislav Sykora, Jun 10 2012

%F For n > 5, a(n) = -27*a(n-6) - _Gerald McGarvey_, Apr 21 2005

%F a(n)=Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n}A109466(n,k)*3^k. [From _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 12 2008]

%F a(n) = sum(k=1..n, binomial(k,n-k) * 3^(k)*(-1)^(n-k)) for n>0; a(0)=1. [From _Vladimir Kruchinin_, Feb 07 2011]

%F By the conjecture: Start with x(0)=1,y(0)=0,z(0)=0 and set x(n+1)=x(n)-z(n), y(n+1)=y(n)-x(n),z(n+1)=z(n)-y(n). Then a(n)=z(n+2). This recurrence indeed ends up in a repetitive cycle of length 6 and multiplicative factor -27, confirming G.McGarvey's observation. - Stanislav Sykora, Jun 10 2012

%F G.f.: Q(0) where Q(k) = 1 + k*(3*x+1) + 9*x - 3*x*(k+1)*(k+4)/Q(k+1) ; (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Mar 15 2013

%F G.f.: G(0)/(2-3*x), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(k+3)/(x*(k+4) + 2/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Jun 16 2013
