This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS For n> 1, a(n) == 6 mod 9. Apart from the second term, the same as A122709. [From R. J. Mathar, Jul 30 2010] LINKS Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1). FORMULA (1 + 3x + 6x^2 + 15x^3 + ...) = (1 + 3x^2 + 3x^3 + 3x^4 + ...) * (1 + 3x + 3x^2 + 3x^3 + 3x^4 + ...). a(0) = 1, a(1) = 3, a(2) = 6; a(n), n>2 = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2). a(n), n>2 = a(n-1) + 9. a(n) = 9*n-12 for n>1. G.f.: (2*x+1)*(3*x^2-x+1)/(x-1)^2. [Colin Barker, Oct 28 2012] EXAMPLE a(4) = 24 = 9 + a(3) = 9 + 15. a(4) = 24 = 2*a(3) - a(2) = 2*15 - 6.
