 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Sequence produced by 4 X 4 Markov chain with symmetric quartic characteristic polynomial x^4-5*x^3+5*x+1. Setting m=3 gives a Fibonacci sequence. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,0,-5,-1). FORMULA Let m=5, M={{0, 1, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 1}, {-1, -m, 0, m}}, v[n]=M.v[n-1], then a(n) = v[n][[1]]. a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=1, a(3)=2, a(n)=5*a(n-1)-5*a(n-3)-a(n-4). - Harvey P.
