COMMENTS

Numbers that are the side lengths of the equilateral triangles needed to draw the spiral which follow the Padovan sequence.

Partial sums of A000931. [Juri-Stepan Gerasimov, Jul 17 2009]

Rising diagonal sums of triangle A152198. - John Molokach, Jul 09 2013

a(n) is the number of pairs of rabbits living at month n with the following rules : a pair of rabbits born in month n begins to procreate in month n + 2, procreates again in month n + 3, and dies at the end of this month (each pair therefore gives birth to 2 pairs); the first pair is born in month 1. - Robert FERREOL, Oct 16 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = A000931(n+4).

G.f.: x * (1 + x) / (1 - x^2 - x^3) = x / (1 - x / (1 - x^2 / (1 + x / (1 - x / (1 + x))))). - Michael Somos, Jan 03 2013

a(0)=a(1)=a(2)=1, a(n)=a(n-2)+a(n-3) for n>=3. - Robert FERREOL, Oct 16 2017

EXAMPLE

a(6)=3 because 6+4=10 and A000931(10)=3.

MAPLE

a:=proc(n, p, q) option remember:

if n<=p then 1

elif n<=q then a(n-1, p, q)+a(n-p, p, q)

else add(a(n-k, p, q), k=p..q) fi end:

seq(a(n, 2, 3), n=0..100); # Robert FERREOL, Oct 16 2017

MATHEMATICA

Drop[ CoefficientList[ Series[(1 - x^2)/(1 - x^2 - x^3), {x, 0, 52}], x], 5] (* Or *) a[1] = a[2] = a[3] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = a[n - 2] + a[n - 3]; Array[ a, 48] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 30 2009 *)

CROSSREFS

The following are basically all variants of the same sequence: A000931, A078027, A096231, A124745, A133034, A134816, A164001, A182097, A228361 and probably A020720. However, each one has its own special features and deserves its own entry.

Sequence in context: A133034 A000931 A078027 * A228361 A182097 A290697

Adjacent sequences:  A134813 A134814 A134815 * A134817 A134818 A134819
