COMMENTS

17^a(n) is largest power of 17 dividing (17^n)!.

Let A be the Hessenberg matrix of order n, defined by: A[1,j]=1, A[i,i]:=17, (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

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n-1} 17^k = (17^n - 1)/16.

G.f.: x/((1 - 17*x)*(1 - x))= (1/(1 - 17*x) - 1/(1 - x))/16.

a(n) = 17*a(n-1)+1 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 16 2010
