COMMENTS

For n >=2, a(n) equals the permanent of the (n-1)X(n-1) tridiagonal matrix with 18's along the main diagonal, and 1's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal. - John M. Campbell, Jul 08 2011

a(n) equals the number of words of length n on alphabet {0,1,...,18} avoiding runs of zeroes of odd lengths. - Milan Janjic, Jan 28 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = F(n,18), the n-th Fibonacci polynomial evaluated at x=18. - T. D. Noe, Jan 19 2006

a(n) = 18*a(n-1)+a(n-2) for n>1, a(0)=1, a(1)=18. G.f.: 1/(1-18*x-x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 21 2008
