%N a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-3) with a(0)=1, a(1) = a(2) = 2.

%C Part of a group of sequences defined by a(0), a(1)=a(2), a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-3) which is a sub-group of sequences with linear recurrences and constant coefficients listed in the index.

%C Note: A000073 (with offset=1), 1 followed by A000073, A000213, A141523, A214727, A214825 to A214831 completely define possible sequences with a(0)=0,1,2...9 and a(1)=a(2)=0,1,2...9 excluding any multiples of these sequences and the trivial case of a(0)=a(1)=a(2)=0.

%C Note: allowing a(0)=0 and a(1)=a(2)=1,2,3....9 leads to A000073 (with offset=1) and its multiples.

%C Note: allowing a(0)=1,2,3....9 a(1)=a(2)=0 leads to 1 followed by A000073 and its multiples.

%C With offset of 6 this sequence is the 8th row of tribonacci array A136175.
