 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Fixed points of the mapping defined by A067585. In binary these numbers show a regular pattern: 0, 11, 11011, 11011011, 11011011011, etc. From Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 22 2010: (Start) a(n) = A173593(6*n-5) for n > 0: terms of A173593 beginning and ending with digits '11' in binary representation; for n > 0: a(n) = A033129(3*n-1); a(n) - a(n-1) = A103333(n). (End) LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9, -8). FORMULA a(n) = 3*A023001(n). Recursion: a(0) = 0, a(n+1) = (((a(n)*2)*2+1)*2+1). a(n) = 8*a(n-1) + 3 (with a(0)=0). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010 a(0)=0, a(1)=3, a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 8*a(n-2). - Harvey P.
