COMMENTS

Row sums of the Riordan array (1, x(1+2x^2)); - Paul Barry, Jan 12 2006

The compositions of n  in which each natural number is colored by one of  p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n.  For n>=3, 3*a(n-3) equals the number of 3-colored compositions of n with all parts >=3, such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 27 2011

Number of compositions of n into parts 1 and two sorts of parts 2. - Joerg Arndt, Aug 29 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = sum{k=0..floor(n/2), C(n-2k, k)2^k}. - Paul Barry, Nov 18 2003

a(n) = sum{k=0..n, C(k, floor((n-k)/2))2^((n-k)/2)(1+(-1)^(n-k))/2}. - Paul Barry, Jan 12 2006

a(n) = term (1,1) in the 3x3 matrix [1,1,0; 0,0,1; 2,0,0]^n. - Alois P. Heinz, Aug 16 2008

G.f.: Q(0)/2, where Q(k) = 1 + 1/(1 - x*(2*k+1 + 2*x^2)/( x*(2*k+2 + 2*x^2) + 1/Q(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 29 2013

MAPLE

a:= n-> (<<1|1|0>, <0|0|1>, <2|0|0>>^n)[1, 1]: seq(a(n), n=0..40);  # Alois P. Heinz, Aug 16 2008
