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.

|a(n)| is a prime number for n in {5, 7, 8, 11, 19, 27, 108, 276, 371, 608, ...} with values {2, 3, 13, 23, 3359, 69481, 167527749243856707416101, ...}.

FORMULA

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

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

a(0)=1, a(1)=a(2)=0, a(n)=a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Nov 22 2011

MAPLE

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

seq(a(n), n=0..50);
