FORMULA

a(n) =A061419(n)+1 =ceiling(K*(3/2)^n) where K=1.08151366859...

The constant K is 2/3*K(3) (see A083286). - Ralf Stephan, May 29, 2003

EXAMPLE

a(6)=floor(9*3/2)=13.

MATHEMATICA

lst = {}; s = 2; Do[s = Floor[s*1.5]; AppendTo[lst, s], {n, 1, 5!}]; lst (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Nov 13 2008 *)
