A187496 Let i in {1,2,3,4} and r>=0 an integer. Let p={p_1,p_2,p_3,p_4}={-3,0,1,2}, n=3*r+p_i and define a(-3)=0. Then a(n)=a(3*r+p_i) gives the quantity of H_(9,2,0) tiles in a subdivided H_(9,i,r) tile after linear scaling by the factor Q^r, where Q=sqrt(2*cos(Pi/9)). 3

(Start) See A187498 for supporting theory. Define the matrix

(0 0 1 1).

Let r>=0, and let B_r be the r-th "block" defined by B_r={a(3*r-3),a(3*r),a(3*r+1),a(3*r+2)} with a(-3)=0. Note that B_r-B_(r-1)-3*B_(r-2)+2*B_(r-3)+B_(r-4)={0,0,0,0}, for r>=4, with initial conditions {B_k}={{0,1,0,0},{1,0,1,0},{0,2,0,1},{2,0,3,1}}, k=0,1,2,3. Let p={p_1,p_2,p_3,p_4}={-3,0,1,2}, n=3*r+p_i and M=(m_(i,j))=(U_1)^r, i,j=1,2,3,4. Then B_r corresponds component-wise to the second column of M, and a(n)=a(3*r+p_i)=m_(i,2) gives the quantity of H_(9,2,0) tiles that should appear in a subdivided H_(9,i,r) tile. (End)

Since a(3*r)=a(3*(r+1)-3) for all r, this sequence arises by concatenation of second-column entries m_(2,2), m_(3,2) and m_(4,2) from successive matrices M=(U_1)^r.

FORMULA

Recurrence: a(n)=a(n-3)+3*a(n-6)-2*a(n-9)-a(n-12), for n>=12, with initial conditions {a(m)}={1,0,0,0,1,0,2,0,1,0,3,1}, m=0,1,...,11.

G.f.: (1-x^3+x^4-x^6-x^7+x^8)/(1-x^3-3*x^6+2*x^9+x^12).
