%N Expansion of (1-x-4x^2)/(1-2x-7x^2+8x^3).

%C Construct a graph as follows:form the graph whose adjacency matrix is the tensor product of that of P_3 and [1,1;1,1], then add a loop at each of the 'internal' nodes. (Spectrum : [0^3;1;(1-sqrt(33))/2;(1+sqrt(33))/2]). a(n) counts closed walks of length n at each of the 'internal' nodes. Partial sums of A100303.

%H <a href="/index/Rec#order_03">Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients</a>, signature (2, 7, -8).

%F a(n)=2a(n-1)+7a(n-2)-8a(n-3); a(n)=1/2+((sqrt(33)+1)^(n+1)+(sqrt(33)-1)^(n+1)(-1)^n)sqrt(33)2^(-n)/132.
