COMMENTS

a(n) = a(n-1) + 8*A015519(n). a(n)/A015519(n+1) converges to sqrt(8).

a(n-1) is the number of compositions of n when there is 1 type of 1 and 8 types of other natural numbers. - Milan Janjic, Aug 13 2010

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+7*x)/(1-2*x-7*x^2).

a(n) = (1/2)*(1-2*sqrt(2))^n + sqrt(2)*(1+2*sqrt(2))^n - (1-2*sqrt(2))^n*sqrt(2) + (1/2)*(1+2*sqrt(2))^n, with n >= 0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 10 2008

a(n) = binomial transform of 1,8,8,64,64,512. - Al Hakanson (hawkuu(AT)gmail.com), Aug 17 2009

If p[1]=1, and p[i]=8,(i>1), and if A is Hessenberg matrix of order n defined by: A[i,j]=p[j-i+1], (i<=j), A[i,j]=-1, (i=j+1), and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n-1)=det A. - Milan Janjic, Apr 29 2010

G.f.: G(0)/(2*x) - 1/x, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(8*k-1)/(x*(8*k+7) - 1/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 28 2013
