 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Equals eigensequence of an infinite lower triangular matrix with 1's in the main diagonal, 0's in the subdiagonal and 2's in the subsubdiagonal. (the triangle in the lower section of A155761). - Gary W. Adamson, Jan 28 2009 The operation in the comment of Jan 28 2009 is equivalent to the INVERT transform of (1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Jan 21 2017 For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of ternary words of length n-1 having at least 2 zeros between every two successive nonzero letters. - Milan Janjic, Mar 09 2015 REFERENCES D. E.
