 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS In general, for sequences of the form a(n) = Product_{i=1..n} j^i-k^i, where j>k>=1 and n>=1: given probability p=(k/j)^n that an outcome will occur at the n-th stage of an infinite process, then r = 1 - a(n)/j^((n^2+n)/2) is the probability that the outcome has occurred at or before the n-th iteration. Here j=4 and k=3, so p=(3/4)^n and r = 1-a(n)/A053763(n+1). The limiting ratio of r is ~ 0.9844550.
