Index entries for sequences related to digits.

FORMULA

O.g.f.: 81*x^2/(1 - 3*x + 2*x^2).

E.g.f.: 81*(exp(x) - 1)^2/2.

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) for n > 2.

a(n) = 81*(2^(n-1) - 1).

a(n) = 81*A000225(n-1).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 0 since the positive integers must have at least two digits;

a(2) = 81 since #[99] - #[9] - #(11*[9]) = 99 - 9 - 9 = 81;

a(3) = 243 since #[999] - #[99] - #(111*[9]) - #{xyz in N | x,y,z are three different digits with x != 0} = 999 - 99 - 9 - 9*9*8 = 243;
