COMMENTS

This sequence also describes the total number of moves solving (non-optimally) the [RED ; NEUTRAL ; NEUTRAL] or [NEUTRAL ; NEUTRAL ; BLUE] pre-colored Magnetic Tower of Hanoi puzzle (see the "CROSSREFS" in A183121). For other Magnetic Tower of Hanoi related sequences, cf. A183111 - A183125.

The allowable number of dimensions in supersymmetric geometries, according to Thad Roberts. - Howard A. Landman, Jan 09 2013

Form an infinite array with m(0,k) = 2*k+1 and m(n,k) = Sum_{r=0..n-1} m(r,k) + Sum_{c=0..k-1} m(n,c), being the sum of the terms above m(n,k) plus those terms to the left of m(n,k). The first row is A005408. The second row is A033484. The first column is A011782. The sum of the terms in the n-th antidiagonal is a(n). - J. M. Bergot, Jun 07 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = n + 3^n.

From Colin Barker, Jan 25 2012: (Start)

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 7*a(n-2) + 3*a(n-3).

G.f.: (1+x)*(1-2*x) / ((1-3*x)*(1-x)^2). (End)

E.g.f.: x*exp(x) + exp(3*x). - G. C. Greubel, May 21 2019
