 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The characteristic polynomial of the matrix A is x^2-3x-2. The first entry of the vector v[n]=A*v[n-1], where A is the 2 X 2 matrix [[0,2],[1,3]] and v is the column vector [0,1]. The (1,1)-entry of the matrix A^n where A=[0,1,1;1,2,1;1,1,2]. - David Neil McGrath, Jul 18 2014 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,2).
