 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS 17^a(n) is largest power of 17 dividing (17^n)!. Let A be the Hessenberg matrix of order n, defined by: A[1,j]=1, A[i,i]:=17, (i>1), A[i,i-1]=-1, and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n)=det(A). - Milan Janjic, Feb 21 2010 LINKS Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..812 FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n-1} 17^k = (17^n - 1)/16. G.f.: x/((1 - 17*x)*(1 - x))= (1/(1 - 17*x) - 1/(1 - x))/16. a(n) = 17*a(n-1)+1 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 16 2010 MAPLE ListTools:-PartialSums([seq(17^k, k=0..30)]); # Robert Israel, Feb 18 2018 MATHEMATICA Table[17^n, {n, 0, 16}] // Accumulate (* Jean-François Alcover, Jul 05 2013 *) PROG (Sage) [gaussian_binomial(n, 1, 17) for n in range(1, 18)] # Zerinvary Lajos, May 28 2009 (Maxima) makelist(sum(17^k, k, 0, n), n, 0, 30); /* Martin Ettl, Nov 05 2012 */ (MAGMA) [&+[17^i: i in [0..n]]: n in [0..20]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 19 2018 CROSSREFS Cf. similar sequences of the form (k^n-1)/(k-1) with k prime: A000225 (k=2), A003462 (k=3), A003463 (k=5), A023000 (k=7), A016123 (k=11), A091030 (k=13), this sequence (k=17), A218722 (k=19), A218726 (k=23), A218732 (k=29), A218734 (k=31), A218740 (k=37), A218744 (k=41), A218746 (k=43), A218750 (k=47).
