 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Binomial transform of A001541. Let A be the unit-primitive matrix (see [Jeffery]) A = A_(8,3) = [0,0,0,1; 0,0,2,0; 0,2,0,1; 2,0,2,0]. Then A084130(n) = (1/4)*Trace(A^(2*n)). (Cf. A006012, A001333.) - L. Edson Jeffery, Apr 04 2011 a(n) is also the rational part of the Q(sqrt*(2)) integer giving the length L(n) of a variant of the Lévy C-curve, given by _Kival Ngaokrajan_, at iteration step n. See A057084. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 18 2014 LINKS L. E. Jeffery, Unit-primitive matrices Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,-8) FORMULA a(n) = (4+sqrt(8))^n/2 + (4-sqrt(8))^n/2. G.f.: (1-4x)/(1-8x+8x^2).
