COMMENTS

a(n) is also the number of length n ternary words with at least 6 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>=13, 3*a(n-13) equals the number of 3-colored compositions of n with all parts >=7, such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 27 2011

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(x^6*(1-x-2*x^7)).

a(n) = 2n+1 if n<=7, else a(n) = a(n-1) + 2a(n-7). - Milan Janjic, Mar 09 2015

MAPLE
