 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A100295 is generated from M^n * [1 0 0]. a(n)/a(n-1) tends to 4.4026788295...a root of the characteristic polynomial of M, x^3 - 4x^2 - 2x + 1 and an eigenvalue of M. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,2,-1). FORMULA a(n) = rightmost term in M^n * [1 1 1]. a(n) = 4*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3). G.f.: -x*(x^2-2*x-1) / (x^3-2*x^2-4*x+1). - Colin Barker, May 25 2013 EXAMPLE a(5) = 488 since M^5 * [1 1 1] = [2149 1263 488]. 2149 = a(6). a(8) = 4*a(7) + 2*a(6) - a(5) =41654 = 4*9461 + 2*2149 - 488.
