COMMENTS

Tribonacci sequence beginning 5, 7, 9.

In general, the ordinary generating function for the recurrence relation b(n) = b(n-1) + b(n-2) + b(n-3), with n>2 and b(0)=k, b(1)=m, b(2)=q, is (k + (m-k)*x  + (q-m-k)*x^2)/(1 - x - x^2 - x^3).

FORMULA

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

a(n) = 3*K(n) - 4*T(n+1) + 8*T(n), where K(n) = A001644(n) and T(n) =A000073(n+1). - G. C. Greubel, Apr 23 2019
