COMMENTS

Equivalently, numbers that are congruent to {0, 1, 2} mod 9.

Also numbers m such that floor(m/3) = 3*floor(m/9).

The n-th term is 3*n, 3*n-2 or 3*n-4.

For n > 0, numbers k such that 3 | floor(k/3). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Dec 01 2020

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1 + x + 7*x^2)/((1 - x)^2*(1 + x + x^2)).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4).

a(n) = 3*n - 2*(n mod 3). In general, n + 3*h*floor(n/3) = (h+1)*n - h*(n mod 3).

a(n) + a(n+s) = a(2*n+s-1) + 1, where s is nonnegative and not divisible by 3. Example: for s=14, a(n) + a(n+14) = a(2*n+13) + 1; for n=3, a(3) + a(17) = a(19) + 1 = 9 + 47 = 55 + 1 = 56.

a(6*k+r) = 18*k + a(r), where 0 <= r <= 5.

a(n) = 7*A002264(n) + A002264(n+1) + A002264(n+2).
