 A140071 Triangle read by rows: iterates of X * [1,0,0,0,...]; where X = an infinite lower bidiagonal matrix with [3,1,3,1,3,1...] in the main diagonal and [1,1,1,...] in the subdiagonal. 3

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Companion triangle A140070 uses an analogous operation with the main diagonal [1,3,1,3,1,3,...]. LINKS FORMULA From Peter Bala, Jan 17 2014: (Start) O.g.f. (1 + (x - 1)*z)/(1 - 4*z - (x^2 - 3)*z^2) = 1 + (x + 3)*z + (x^2 + 4*x + 9)*z^2 + .... Recurrence equation: T(n,k) = 4*T(n-1,k) - 3*T(n-2,k) + T(n-2,k-2). Recurrence equation for row polynomials: R(n,x) = 4*R(n-1,x) + (x^2 - 3)*R(n-2,x) with R(0,x) = 1 and R(1,x) = 3 + x. Another recurrence equation: R(n,x) = (x + 2)*R(n-1,x) + R(n-1,-x) with R(0,x) = 1. Cf. A157751. (End) EXAMPLE First few rows of the triangle are: 1; 3, 1; 9, 4, 1; 27, 13, 7, 1; 81, 40, 34, 8, 1; 243, 121, 142, 42, 11, 1; 729, 364, 547, 184, 75, 12, 1; 2187, 1093, 2005, 731, 409, 87, 15, 1; 6561, 3280, 7108, 2736, 1958, 496, 132, 16, 1; ...
