Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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[1] 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

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,2).

FORMULA

Recurrence relation: a(n)=3a(n-1)+2a(n-2) for n>=3; a(1)=0, a(2)=2.

O.g.f.: -2*x^2/(-1+3*x+2*x^2). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 05 2007

a(n) = -(2/17)*sqrt(17)*[3/2-(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n+(2/17)*[3/2+(1/2)*sqrt(17)]^n*sqrt(17), with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 12 2008

MAPLE

a[1]:=0: a[2]:=2: for n from 3 to 25 do a[n]:=3*a[n-1]+2*a[n-2] od: seq(a[n], n=1..25);

MATHEMATICA

M = {{0, 2}, {1, 3}} v[1] = {0, 1} v[n_] := v[n] = M.v[n - 1] a = Table[Abs[v[n][[1]]], {n, 1, 50}] (* or *)
