 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS a(n) is also the number of length n ternary words with at least 4 0-digits between any other digits. The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n>=9, 3*a(n-9) equals the number of 3-colored compositions of n with all parts >=5, such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 27 2011 LINKS Alois P.
