COMMENTS

Peter Lawrence (see links) has posted a challenge to find a 3x3 integer matrix with "smallish" elements whose powers generate a sequence that is not in the OEIS. This sequence is one of the solutions found.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-3,1)

FORMULA

G.f.: -(3*x^2-5*x+1)/(x^3-3*x^2+5*x-1).

Term (1,1) in the 3x3 matrix [0,1,0; 0,0,1; 1,-3,5]^n.

MAPLE

a:= n-> (<<0|1|0>, <0|0|1>, <1|-3|5>>^n)[1, 1]:

seq(a(n), n=0..30);
