Index entries for sequences related to cellular automata

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,6,-8). [R. J. Mathar, Dec 12 2009]

FORMULA

a(n) = 3a(n-1)+6a(n-2)-8a(n-3).

a(n) = 1/9-(2/9)*(-2)^n+(1/9)*4^n, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 12 2008

a(n) = (A001045(n))^2. G.f.: x*(1-2*x)/((1-x)*(1+2*x)*(1-4*x)).

MATHEMATICA

PROG

(MAGMA) [1/9-(2/9)*(-2)^n+(1/9)*4^n: n in [0..35]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 09 2011

(PARI) concat (0, Vec(x*(1-2*x)/((1-x)*(1+2*x)*(1-4*x)) + O(x^30))) \\ Michel Marcus, Mar 04 2015

CROSSREFS

Cf. A001045, A246035. First differences give (apart from signs) A083086.
