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

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..15.

EXAMPLE

a(4)=783 because if M is the 2 X 2 matrix [0,1;3,9], then M^4 is the 2 X 2 matrix [252,783,2349,7299].

MAPLE

with(linalg): a:=proc(n) local A, k: A[1]:=matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, n-1, 3*(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..18);

MATHEMATICA

M[n_] = If[n > 1, MatrixPower[{{0, 1}, {n - 1, 3*(n - 1)}}, n], {{0, 1}, {1, 1}}] a = Table[M[n][[1, 2]], {n, 1, 50}]
