The University of Sydney MATH 1004 Second Semester Discrete Mathematics 2011 Tutorial 11 Week 12 1. Find a closed form for the generating function of the sequence a 0 , a 1 , ... , where a 0 = 1 , a 1 = 1 and a n = 5 a n - 1 - 6 a n - 2 . 2. Let a 0 , a 1 , a 2 , ... , be a sequence of integers satisfying the recurrence relation a n - 2 a n - 1 - a n - 2 + 2 a n - 3 = 0 , for n 4, where a 0 = 0, a 1 = 0, a 2 = 2 and a 3 = 5. Find a closed form for the generating function of this sequence. 3. Solve the following recurrence relations using generating functions: ( i ) x n = 4 x n - 1 - 3 x n - 2 , where x 0 = 1 and x 1 = 2. ( ii ) x n = 3 x n - 1 - 3 x n - 2 + x n - 3 , where x 0 = 0, x 1 = 1 and x 2 = 3. 4. Consider the recurrence relation a n = a n - 1 + 4 , for n> 0 and where a 0 = 1 . Find a closed form for its generating function and thereby find a formula for a n .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
