 A093953 a(n) = rightmost term in M^n * [1,1,1], where M = a 3 X 3 matrix composed of the first 3 rows of A050166 (fill in the matrix with zeros): = [1 0 0 / 1 2 0 / 1 4 5]. 0

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS A sequence relating to Catalan numbers. 1. a(n)/a(n-1) tends to 5, a Catalan number. E.g. a(6)/a(5) = 45403/9030 = 4.9948... 2. Generally, with M = an N X N matrix composed of rows of A050166 (along with zeros), M^n * [1,1,1...] generates terms [a, b, c, d...] such that sequences of which a,b,c,d...are members converge upon the Catalan numbers: 1, 2, 5, 14, 42, 132... Companion (M^n)[3,2] = 4*A016127(n), (M^n)[3,3] = 5^n = A000351(n), so a(n) = a(n-1) + 4*A016127(n-1) + 5^(n-1) for n>0 - Lambert Klasen (lambert.klasen(AT)gmx.net), Jan 30 2005 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,-17,10). FORMULA Or simply with M=[1, 0, 0;1, 2, 0;1, 4, 5], a(n)=(M^n)[3, 1], (adds a leading 0 to sequence) - Lambert Klasen (lambert.klasen(AT)gmx.net), Jan 30 2005 G.f.: (1+2*x)/(1-8*x+17*x^2-10*x^3). [Colin Barker, Jan 31 2012] EXAMPLE a(4) = 1781 since M^4 * [1,1,1] = [1, 31, 1781]. PROG (PARI) M=[1, 0, 0; 1, 2, 0; 1, 4, 5]; for(i=0, 10, print1((M^i)[3, 1], ", ")) (Klasen) CROSSREFS Cf.
