 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n-1) agrees with the graph radius of the n-Sierpinski carpet graph for n = 2 to at least n = 5. See A100774 for the graph diameter of the n-Sierpinski carpet graph. The inverse binomial transform gives 3, 7, 14, 28, 56, ... i.e., A005009 with a leading 3. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 08 2020 First differences of A108765. The digital root of a(n) for n > 1 is always 4. a(n) is never divisible by 7 or by 12. a(n) == 10 (mod 84) for odd n. a(n) == 31 (mod 84) for even n > 0. Conjecture: This sequence contains no prime factors p == {11, 13, 23, 61 71, 73} (mod 84). - Klaus Purath, Apr 13 2020 This is a subsequence of A017209 for n > 1.

FORMULA G.f.: (3-2*x)/((1-x)*(1-3*x)). a(n) = A000244(n+1) + A003462(n). a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 1 for n > 0, a(0)=3. (Note that if a(0) were 1 in this recurrence we would get A003462, if it were 2 we would get A060816. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 06 2019) a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) for n > 1, a(0)=3, a(1)=10. a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) + 2 for n > 1. a(n) = A199109(n) - 1. a(n) = (7*3^n - 1)/2. - Eric W. Weisstein, Mar 13 2018 From Klaus Purath, Apr 13 2020: (Start) a(n) = A057198(n+1) + A024023(n). a(n) = A029858(n+2) - A024023(n). a(n) = A052919(n+1) + A029858(n+1). a(n) = (A000244(n+1) + A171498(n))/2. a(n) = 7*A003462(n) + 3. a(n) = A116952(n) + 2.
