(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A076505 3 people at a party are saying Hello to each other. Person 1 says Hello. Person 2 counts the times Hello has been said and says Hello twice that number. Person 3 says Hello 3 times the sum of Hello's and then it is Person 1 again. This is how many Hello's each person says. 1

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..27.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,0,24).

FORMULA

For n>4, a(n) = a(n-3)*4!. - Rob Hoogers (chimera(AT)chimera.fol.nl), Jun 27 2004.

a(n) = 2^i*3^j, with i=A064429(n-1), j=[n/3]+[n%3==0].

G.f.: x*(1-x)*(1+3*x+12*x^2)/(1-24*x^3). - Colin Barker, Jun 07 2012

PROG

(PARI) mod 3(n)=if (i%3==0, 3, i%3) s=1; for (i=2, 30, print1(s*mod 3(i), ", "); s=s+s*mod 3(i))
