COMMENTS

Related to the sum of Fibonacci-variants: Sum of the (Fibonacci numbers)/(10^n) = 0/(10^1) + 1/(10^2) + 1/(10^3) + 2/(10^4) + 3/(10^5) + 5/(10^6) + ... = 1/89. Sum of the (tribonacci numbers)/(10^(n+1)) = 1/889. Sum of the (tetranacci numbers)/(10^(n+2)) = 1/8889, etc. The denominators of those sums is the current sequence. The first one is of course 0.11111111111... = 1/9. - partially edited by Michel Marcus, Jan 27 2014

Let A be the Hessenberg matrix of the order n, defined by: A[1,j]=1, A[i,i]:=12, (i>1), A[i,i-1]=-1, and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n-1)=(-1)^(n-1)*charpoly(A,2). - Milan Janjic, Feb 21 2010

Except for the initial term, these are the 9-automorphic numbers ending in 9. - Eric M. Schmidt, Aug 17 2012

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (11,-10).

FORMULA

a(n) = (10^n)*(1000/1125) + (1/9).

a(n) = A002282(n)+1 = (8*10^n+1)/9.

a(n) = 10*a(n-1)-1 with n>0, a(0)=1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 07 2010

G.f.: -(2*x-1) / ((x-1)*(10*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Feb 02 2013

a(n) = 10^n - sum(10^i, i=0..n-1) for n>0. - Bruno Berselli, Jun 20 2013

EXAMPLE

a(3) = (10^3)*(1000/1125) + (1/9) = (8000/9) + (1/9) = 889.
