A Study On Generalized (r,s,t)-Numbers


  • Yüksel Soykan Zonguldak Bülent Ecevit University


Tribonacci numbers, Lucas (r,s,t) number, Selected:(r,s,t) numbers


In this paper, we investigate the generalized (r; s; t) sequence and we deal with, in detail, three special cases which we call them (r; s; t), Lucas (r; s; t), and modified (r; s; t) sequences. We present Binet’s formulas, generating functions, Simson formulas, and the summation formulas for these sequences. Moreover, we give some identities and matrices related to these sequences.
