%N Expansion of 5*(1-6*x+x^2)/(1-10*x+5*x^2)

%C (Start) Let A be the unit-primitive matrix (see [Jeffery])

%C A=A_(10,3)=

%C (0 0 0 1 0)

%C (0 0 1 0 1)

%C (0 1 0 2 0)

%C (1 0 2 0 1)

%C (0 2 0 2 0).

%C Then a(n)=Trace(A^(2*n)). (End)

%C Evidently one of a class of accelerator sequences for Catalan's constant based on traces of successive powers (here they are A^(2*n)) of a unit-primitive matrix A_(N,r) (0<r<floor(N/2)) and for which the closed-form expression for a(n) is derived from the eigenvalues of A_(N,r).
