%C a(n+1) is the number of compositions of n having parts 1 and 2, both of three kinds. - _Gregory L. Simay_, Sep 21 2017

%C More generally, define a(n) = k*a(n-1) + k*a(n-2), a(0) = 0 and a(1) = 1. Then g.f. a(n) = 1/(1 - k*x - k*x^2) and a(n+1) is the number of compositions of n having parts 1 and 2, both of k kinds. - _Gregory L. Simay_, Sep 22 2017
