Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,9,-9).

FORMULA

a(2i) = 2 sum_{j=0}^{i-1}9^j =  string "2"^i read in base 9.

a(2i+1) = 9^i +  2 sum_{j=0}^{i-1}9^j = string "1"*"2"^i read in base 9.

a(n) = (-3-(-3)^n+4*3^n)/12. a(n) = a(n-1)+9*a(n-2)-9*a(n-3). G.f.: -x^3*(18*x^2-9*x-11) / ((x-1)*(3*x-1)*(3*x+1)). - Colin Barker, Feb 01 2013
