 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS This type of vertex cartoon substitution can be counted by this Markov method. The 2by2 model is has a C4 axis of rotation. LINKS FORMULA Vertex substitutions are: v3'=3*v3; v4'=4*v4 giving the matrix: M = {{3, 0}, {0, 4}} The five vertex start has count vector: v(0)={4,1}; v(n)=M.v(n-1); a(n)=Sum[v(n)[[m]],{m,1,2}]. a(n)=7*a(n-1)-12*a(n-2) = 4*3^n+4^n. G.f.: (5-19x)/((1-4x)(1-3x)). [From R. J. Mathar, Nov 09 2008] MATHEMATICA Clear[M, v, n, m, x]; M = {{3, 0}, {0, 4}}; v[0] = { 4, 1}; v[n_] := v[n] = M.v[n - 1]; Table[Sum[v[n][[m]], {m, 1, 2}], {n, 0, 20}] CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A077840 A007343 A274492 * A173871 A108300 A041469 Adjacent sequences:  A147533 A147534 A147535 * A147537 A147538 A147539 KEYWORD nonn,uned AUTHOR Roger L.
