FORMULA

Binomial transform of A077552.

a(n) = 2*3^n-n-1. - Rolf Pleisch, Sep 26 2010

G.f.: (1-x+2*x^2)/((1-3*x)*(1-x)^2). - Bruno Berselli, Mar 31 2011

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 15 = sum of row 2 terms of triangle A132307: (7 + 7 + 1).

a(2) = 15 = (1, 2, 1) dot (1, 3, 8) = (1 + 6 + 8); where A077552 = (1, 3, 8, 16, 32, 64,...).

MAPLE
