Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

According to Boyd (Acta Arithm. 32 (1977) p 89), quoting Pisot, every E(3,.) sequence satisfies a linear recurrence of at most order 3. Here this is easily derived from the first terms of the sequence. - R. J. Mathar, May 26 2008

A010920 coincides with this sequence for at least the first 32600 terms and probably more. - R. J. Mathar, May 26 2008

For n >= 1, a(n-1) is the number of generalized compositions of n when there are i+2 different types of i, (i=1,2,...). - Milan Janjic, Sep 24 2010

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) = 3*A116415(n) - 2*A116415(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, May 26 2008

O.g.f.: (3-2*x)/(1-5*x+3*x^2). - R. J. Mathar, May 26 2008

a(n) = (2^(-1-n)*((5-sqrt(13))^n*(-11+3*sqrt(13)) + (5+sqrt(13))^n*(11+3*sqrt(13))))/sqrt(13). - Colin Barker, Nov 26 2016
