A100538 Volume of the 3-dimensional box of sides of length equal to consecutive Padovan numbers (A000931). These boxes form a spiral in three dimensions similar to the spiral of Fibonacci boxes in two dimensions. 2

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,2,3,-2,4,-4,-1,-1,0,-1).

FORMULA

For large n a(n+1) -> a(n) * p^3 where p is the plastic number = 1.324718... a(n+1) = a(n)+ (a(n)/P(n))*P(n+1 ) where P are the Padovan numbers (A000931) starting 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, etc.

a(n) = +a(n-1) +2*a(n-2) +3*a(n-3) -2*a(n-4) +4*a(n-5) -4*a(n-6) -a(n-7) -a(n-8) -a(n-10) = A000931(n+4)*A000931(n+5)*A000931(n+6). G.f.: x*(1+x+x^3) / ( (x-1)*(x^3-2*x^2+3*x-1)*(x^6+3*x^5+5*x^4+5*x^3+5*x^2+3*x+1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Sep 14 2010
