 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS This sequence appears in the touching circle problem considered in A247512. There the rational curvatures are b'(n) = a(n)/9^(n-1), and A247512(n) = floor(b'(n)). See the W. Lang link, part II) with the details where B'(n) plays the role of a(n). LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..800 Wolfdieter Lang, Curvature computation for A247335 and A247512. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (31,-279,729). FORMULA One step recurrence: a(n) = 11*a(n-1) - 9^(n-1) + 20*sqrt((a(n-1) - 9^(n-1))*a(n-1)/10), a(0) = 1, n >= 1. a(n) =  (9^n)*(1 + S(n, 22/9) - (11/9)*S(n-1, 22/9))/2, with Chebyshev's S-polynomials (see A049310). For 9^n*S(n, 22/9) see A246645(n). The positive integer sequence sqrt((a(n) - 9^n)*a(n)/10) = A246645(n-1). O.g.f.: (1 - 21*x + 90*x^2)/((1 - 9*x)*(1 - 22*x + 81*x^2)) = (1/2)*((1 -11*x)/(1 - 22*x + 81*x^2 ) - 1/(1 - 9*x)). For the proofs see the W. Lang link with a(n) = B'(n). a(n) = 31*a(n-1)-279*a(n-2)+729*a(n-3). - Colin Barker, Sep 30 2014 MATHEMATICA CoefficientList[Series[(1 - 21*x + 90*x^2)/((1 - 9*x)*(1 - 22*x + 81*x^2)), {x, 0, 50}], x] (* or *) LinearRecurrence[{31, -279, 729}, {1, 10, 121}, 50] (* G.
