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

The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n.  For n>=2, 11*a(n-2) equals the number of 11-colored compositions of n with all parts >=2, such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 26 2011

For a(n) = [(1+(4m+1)^1/2)^n)-(1-(4m+1)^1/2))^n)]/[(2^n)(4m+1)^1/2), a(n)/a(n-1) appears to converge to (1+sqrt(4m+1))/2. Here with m = 10, the numbers in the sequence are congruent with those of the Fibonacci sequence modulo m-1 = 9. For example, F(8) = 21 (Fibonacci) corresponds to a(8) = 5061 (here) because 2+1 and 5+0+1+6 are congruent. - Maleval Francis, Nov 12 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = (((1+sqrt(41))/2)^(n+1) - ((1-sqrt(41))/2)^(n+1))/sqrt(41).

From Paul Barry, Sep 10 2005: (Start)

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial((n+k)/2, k)*(1+(-1)^(n-k))*10^((n-k)/2)/2.

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} binomial(n-k, k)*10^k. (End)

a(n) is the entry (M^n)_1,1 where the matrix M = [1,2;5,0]. - Simone Severini, Jun 22 2006

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A109466(n,k)*(-10)^(n-k). - Philippe Deléham, Oct 26 2008

G.f.: 1/(1-x-10*x^2). - Colin Barker, Feb 03 2012

a(n) = (sum{1<=k<=n+1, k odd}C(n+1,k)*41^((k-1)/2))/2^n. - Vladimir Shevelev, Feb 05 2014
