The Padovan sequence is similar to the Fibonacci sequence in several ways. Some are given in the table below, and the referenced video shows some of the geometric similarities.

Recurrence initial values. P(0)=P(1)=P(2)=1 F(0)=0, F(1)=1

## J

Implementation:

```padovanSeq=: (],+/@(_2 _3{]))^:([-3:)&1 1 1

realRoot=. {:@(#~ ]=|)@;@p.
padovanNth=: 0.5 <.@+ (realRoot _23 23 _2 1) %~ (realRoot _1 _1 0 1)^<:

seqLen=. #@(-.&' ')"1
```

Typically, inductive sequences based on a function F with an initial value G can be expressed using an expression of the form F@]^:[@G or something similar. Here, [ represents the argument to the derived recurrence function. For padovanSeq, we are generating a sequence, so we want to retain the previous values. So instead of just using f=: +/@(_2 3{]) which adds up the second and third numbers from the end of the sequence, we also retain the previous values using F=: ],f

But, also, since our initial value is a sequence with three elements, we can make the argument to the recurrence function be the length of the desired sequence by replacing [ for the repetition count with [-3:

```   padovanSeq 20
1 1 1 2 2 3 4 5 7 9 12 16 21 28 37 49 65 86 114 151

L-System stuff is based on the Julia implementation.
