Table of n, a(n) for n=2..20.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (13,-39,27).

FORMULA

a(n) =3*A006100(n).

From Colin Barker, Aug 15 2014: (Start)

a(n) = (3-4*3^n+9^n)/16.

a(n) = 13*a(n-1)-39*a(n-2)+27*a(n-3).

G.f.: -3*x^2 / ((x-1)*(3*x-1)*(9*x-1)). (End)

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := 3^(k - 1); t[n_] := Table[f[k], {k, 1, n}]

a[n_] := SymmetricPolynomial[2, t[n]]
