G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,9,27).

FORMULA

a(n) = Trace of matrix [({3,3,3},{3,0,0},{0,3,0)^n].

a(n) = 3^n * Trace of matrix [({1,1,1},{1,0,0},0,1,0)^n].

From Colin Barker, Sep 02 2013: (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 9*a(n-2) + 27*a(n-3).

G.f.: -3*x*(27*x^2+6*x+1)/(27*x^3+9*x^2+3*x-1). (End)
