Equals row 3 in the array shown in A178568, an infinite family of sequences of the form a(2n) = r*a(n), a(2n+1) = a(n) + a(n+1). Let M = an infinite lower triangular matrix with (1, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0,...) in each column, and with successive columns shifted down twice from the previous column. A178590 = Lim_{n->inf} M^n, the left-shifted vector considered as a sequence. The Stern polynomial B(n,x) evaluated at x=3. See A125184. - T. D.
