"Higher Order Linear Recurrences by Matrix Methods"









Abstract: In this talk, we consider k-sequences of generalized order-klinear recurrences with arbitrary initial conditions and coefficients, and we give some formulae for them such as generalized Binet formulas. We give a generating matrix to derive explicit formulae for the sums of terms of these k-sequences by matrix methods.
