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.

FORMULA

Expansion of 9 + (eta(q) / eta(q^3))^12 in powers of q.

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1/q - 3 + 54*q - 76*q^2 - 243*q^3 + 1188*q^4 - 1384*q^5 - 2916*q^6 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] :=  With[{m = n + 1}, SeriesCoefficient[ 9 q + (Product[ 1 - q^k, {k, m}] / Product[ 1 - q^k, {k, 3, m, 3}])^12, {q, 0, m}]] (* Michael Somos, Nov 08 2011 *)

QP = QPochhammer; s = 9*q+(QP[q]/QP[q^3])^12 + O[q]^30; CoefficientList[s, q] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Nov 12 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = my(A); if( n<-1, 0, n++; A = x * O(x^n); polcoeff( 9*x + (eta(x + A) / eta(x^3 + A))^12, n))}; /* Michael Somos, Nov 08 2011 */

CROSSREFS

Essentially same as A007244, A030182, A045481.

Sequence in context: A208631 A093164 A092448 * A275566 A174782 A119294
