The reduced values are Ms(n) = 0, 1/3, 2/9, 1/9, 4/81, 5/243, 2/243, 7/2187, 8/6561, 1/2187, ... .

Numerators: 0, 1, 2, 1, 4, ... = A038502(n).

Ms(-n) = 0, -3, -18, ... = - A036290(n).

Difference table of Ms(n):

0,          1/3,    2/9,    1/9,   4/81, 5/243, 2/243, ...

1/3,       -1/9,   -1/9,  -5/81, -7/243, -1/81, ...

-4/9,         0,   4/81,  8/243,  4/243, ...

4/9,       4/81, -4/243, -4/243, ...

-32/81, -16/243,      0, ...

80/243,  16/243, ...

-64/243, ...

etc.

The difference table of O(n) = n/2^n (Oresme numbers) has its 0's on the main diagonal. Here the 0's appear every two rows. For n/4^n,they appear every three rows. (The denominators of O(n) are 2^A093048(n)).

All terms are powers of 3 (A000244).

FORMULA

For n>0, a(n) = 3^(n - valuation(n,3)) = 3^(n - A007949(n)). - Tom Edgar, Jun 02 2016

a(3n+1) = 3^(3n+1), a(3n+2) = 3^(3n+2).

a(3n+6) = 27*(3n+3).

From Peter Bala, Feb 25 2019: (Start)

a(n) = 3^n/gcd(n,3^n).

O.g.f.: 1 + F(3*x) - (2/3)*F((3*x)^3) - (2/9)*F((3*x)^9) - (2/27)*F((3*x)^27) - ..., where F(x) = x/(1 - x).

O.g.f. for reciprocals: Sum_{n >= 0} x^n/a(n) = 1 +  F((x/3)) + 2*( F((x/3)^3) + 3*F((x/3)^9) + 9*F((x/3)^27) + ... ). Cf. A038502. (End)
