 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The (1,2)-entry of the n-th power of the 2 X 2 matrix [0,1;1,1] is the Fibonacci number A000045(n). LINKS EXAMPLE a(4)=252 because if M is the 2 X 2 matrix [0,1;3,6], then M^4 is the 2 X 2 matrix [117,252;756;1629]. MAPLE with(linalg): a:=proc(n) local A, k: A[1]:=matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, n-1, 2*(n-1)]): for k from 2 to n do A[k]:=multiply(A[k-1], A[1]) od: A[n][1, 2] end: seq(a(n), n=1..19); MATHEMATICA M[n_] = If[n > 1, MatrixPower[{{0, 1}, {n - 1, 2*(n - 1)}}, n], {{0, 1}, {1, 1}}] a = Table[M[n][[1, 2]], {n, 1, 50}] CROSSREFS Cf.
