Ray Chandler, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, -1).

FORMULA

After the initial block of three 1's, the sequence is quasi-periodic with period 9, increasing by 3 after each block.

From Colin Barker, Nov 05 2015: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-9) - a(n-10) for n>12.

G.f.: x*(x^11-x^10-x^8+x^7+x^6+x^3+1) / ((x-1)^2*(x^2+x+1)*(x^6+x^3+1)).

(End)
