Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Peter Lawrence (see links) has posted a challenge to find a 3x3 integer matrix with "smallish" elements whose powers generate a sequence that is not in the OEIS. This sequence is one of the solutions found.

FORMULA

G.f.: -(3*x^2-5*x+1)/(x^3-3*x^2+5*x-1).

Term (1,1) in the 3x3 matrix [0,1,0; 0,0,1; 1,-3,5]^n.

MAPLE

a:= n-> (<<0|1|0>, <0|0|1>, <1|-3|5>>^n)[1, 1]:

seq(a(n), n=0..30);
