COMMENTS

An Engel expansion of 4/3 to the base 4 as defined in A181565, with the associated series expansion 4/3 = 4/4 + 4^2/(4*13) + 4^3/(4*13*49) + 4^4/(4*13*49*193) + .... Cf. A199115. - Peter Bala, Oct 29 2013

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-4).

FORMULA

a(n) = A002001(n+1) + 1.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 3.

First differences: a(n+1) - a(n)= A002063(n).

a(n+k) - a(n)= 3*(4^k-1)*A000302(n) = 9*A002450(k)*A000302(n).

a(n) = A140529(n) - A096045(n).

O.g.f.: (7*x-4)/((1-x)*(4*x-1)). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 14 2008

From G. C. Greubel, Sep 15 2017: (Start)

E.g.f.: 3*exp(4*x) + exp(x).

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2). (End)
