COMMENTS
13^a(n) is highest power of 13 dividing (13^n)!.
For analogs with primes 2, 3, 5, 7 and 11 see A000225, A003462, A003463, A023000 and A016123 respectively.
Let A be the Hessenberg matrix of the order n, defined by: A[1,j]=1,A[i,i]:=13, (i>1), A[i,i-1]=-1, and A[i,j]=0 otherwise. Then, for n>=1, a(n)=det(A). - Milan Janjic, Feb 21 2010

FORMULA
G.f.: x/((1-13*x)*(1-x)) = (1/(1-13*x) - 1/(1-x))/12.
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n-1} 13^k = (13^n-1)/12.
a(n) = 13*a(n-1)+1 for n>1, a(1)=1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 05 2011
a(n) = Sum_{k=0...n-1} 12^k*binomial(n,n-1-k). - Bruno Berselli, Nov 12 2015
E.g.f.: exp(x)*(exp(12*x) - 1)/12. - Stefano Spezia, Mar 11 2023
EXAMPLE
For n=6, a(6) = 1*6 + 12*15 + 144*20 + 1728*15 + 20736*6 + 248832*1 = 402234. - Bruno Berselli, Nov 12 2015
