  7. Tribonacci-Like Sequences and Generalized Pascal's Pyramids

    Giuseppina Anatriello & Giovanni Vincenzi

    A well-known result of Feinberg and Shannon states that the tribonacci sequence can be detected by the so-called "Pascal's pyramid." Here we will show that any tribonacci-like... More
