 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This is the unsigned member r=-9 of the family of Chebyshev sequences S_r(n) defined in A092184: ((-1)^(n+1))*a(n) = S_{-9}(n), n>=0. a(n+1) is the number of tilings of an n-board (a board with dimensions n X 1) using (1/2,1/2)-fences, red half-squares (1/2 X 1 pieces, always placed so that the shorter sides are horizontal), green half-squares, and blue half-squares. A (w,g)-fence is a tile composed of two w X 1 pieces separated by a gap of width g. a(n+1) also equals the number of tilings of an n-board using (1/4,3/4)-fences, red (1/4,1/4)-fences, green (1/4,1/4)-fences, and blue (1/4,1/4)-fences. - Michael A.

Allen and Kenneth Edwards, Fence tiling derived identities involving the metallonacci numbers squared or cubed, Fib. Q. 60:5 (2022) 5-17. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (10,10,-1). FORMULA a(n) = 10*(a(n-1)+a(n-2)) - a(n-3). G.f.: (1-x)*x/(1-10*x-10*x^2+x^3). a(n) = ((3-sqrt(13))^n-(3+sqrt(13))^n)^2/(13*4^n). a(n) = 2*(T(n, 11/2)-(-1)^n)/13 with twice the Chebyshev's polynomials of the first kind evaluated at x=11/2: 2*T(n, 11/2)=A057076(n)=((11+3*sqrt(13))^n + (11-3*sqrt(13))^n)/2^n. - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 18 2004 From Michael A. Allen, Dec 30 2022: (Start) a(n+1) = 11*a(n) - a(n-1) + 2*(-1)^n. a(n+1) = (1 + (-1)^n)/2 + 9*Sum_{k=1..n} ( k*a(n+1-k) ). (End) EXAMPLE a(5) = 10*(1089+100)-9 = 11881. From A006190, a(5) = (3*33+10)^2 = 11881.
