# Question:Recursive sequence

## Question:Recursive sequence

Maple 18

hi every one, i would like to know if it is possible to implement the following recursive sequence in Maple :

q(1)       = q(0)        +q_dot(0)
q_dot(1)  = q_dot(0)  +q_ddot(0)
q_ddot(1) = q_ddot(0)+q_dddot

q(2)       = q(1)        +q_dot(1)   = (q(0)+q_dot(0)) + (q_dot(0)+q_ddot(0)) = q(0)+2q_dot(0)+q_ddot(0)
q_dot(2)  = q_dot(1)  +q_ddot(1)
q_ddot(2) = q_ddot(1)+q_dddot

q(3)      = q(2)        +q_dot(2)=(q(0)+2q_dot(0)+q_ddot(0))+(q_dot(1)+q_ddot(1))= q(0)+3q_dot(0)+q_ddot(0)+q_dddot
q_dot(3) = q_dot(2)  +q_ddot(2)
q_ddot(3)= q_ddot(2)+q_dddot

I would like every q(n) to be expressed as following : q(n)=q(0)+n_1*q_dot(0)+n_2*q_ddot(0)+n_3*q_dddot.

By computing manually some sequences i am now sure that :
n_1=n
n_2=(n²-n)/2
n_3=?? (I would like to find this one)

The sequence can be written in a more general way as following :
q(n)        = q(n-1) + q_dot(n-1)
q_dot(n)   = q_dot(n-1) + q_ddot(n-1)
q_ddot(n) =q_ddot(n-1)+q_dddot

Can you guys please show me how this can be implementes in Maple ?
