COMMENTS

We have a(n)=C(n;-1), A121449(n)=A(n;-1), A085810(n+1)=-B(n+1;-1), where A(n;d), B(n;d), and C(n;d), n in N, d in C, are so-called quasi-Fibonacci numbers defined and discussed in the comments to A121449 and in Witula-Slota-Warzynski's paper. It follows from formulas (3.47-49) in this paper that the value of A(n;1/3), B(n;1/3) and C(n;1/3) could be obtained from special convolution type identities for sequences a(n), A121449, and A085810.

FORMULA

G.f.: x^2/(1-4*x+3*x^2+x^3).

a(n) = (1/7)*((c(2)-c(4))*(1-c(1))^n + (c(4)-c(1))*(1-c(2))^n + (c(1)-c(2))*(1-c(4))^n), where c(j):=2*cos(2*Pi*j/7) - this formula is the Binet formula for a(n) (see the Binet formula (3.17) for the respective quasi-Fibonacci number C(n;d) for value d=-1 in the Witula-Slota-Warzynski paper).
