COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of compositions of n when there are 3 types of 1 and 6 types of other natural numbers. [From Milan Janjic, Aug 13 2010]

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..22.


FORMULA

G.f. (1x)/(14*x3*x^2) . a(n)=Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n} 3^k*A122542(n,k).
a(n+1)/a(n)> 2+sqrt(7)= 4,645751311064... if n>infinity.
a(n)=(1/14)*[2sqrt(7)]^n*sqrt(7)+(1/14)*sqrt(7)*[2+sqrt(7)]^n+(1/2)*[2sqrt(7)]^n+(1/2)*[2 +sqrt(7)]^n [From Paolo P. Lava, Nov 19 2008]
a(n)= ((7+sqrt(7))/14)*(2+sqrt(7))^n+ ((7sqrt(7))/14)*(2sqrt(7))^n [From Richard Choulet, Nov 20 2008]
