#### Abstract

The row first-minus-last right (RFMLR) circulant matrix and row last-minus-first left (RLMFL) circulant matrices are two special pattern matrices. By using the inverse factorization of polynomial, we give the exact formulae of determinants of the two pattern matrices involving Perrin, Padovan, Tribonacci, and the generalized Lucas sequences in terms of finite many terms of these sequences.

#### 1. Introduction

Several special matrices arise frequently in many fields including image processing, communications, medicine, and signal encoding [1]. The application of a block-circulant matrix approach for singular value decomposition rendered the analysis independent of tracer arrival time to improve the results in [2]. Yin et al. introduced fast algorithms for reconstructing signals from incomplete Toeplitz and circulant measurements and showed that Toeplitz and circulant matrices not only were as effective as random matrices for signal encoding but also permitted much faster decoding in [3]. Wu et al. proposed a technique that was made time-shift insensitive by the use of a block-circulant matrix for deconvolution with (oSVD) and without (cSVD) minimization of oscillation of the derived residue function in [4].

The circulant matrices [5, 6], a fruitful subject of research, have in recent years been extended in many directions. The -circulant matrices are another natural extension of this well-studied class and can be found in [7–10]. The -circulant matrix has a wide application, especially on the generalized cyclic codes [7]. The properties and structures of the -circulant matrices, which are called the row first-minus-last right (RFMLR) circulant matrices, are better than those of the general -circulant matrices, so it is significant that we give our attention to them. We first introduce the definitions of the row first-minus-last right (RFMLR) circulant matrices and row last-minus-first left () circulant matrices. As regards their more properties, please refer to [11, 12].

*Definition 1. *A row first-minus-last right () circulant matrix with the first row , denoted by , is meant to be a square matrix of the form

We define matrix as the basic RFMLR circulant matrix; that is,

*Definition 2. *A row last-minus-first left (RLMFL) circulant matrix with the first row , denoted by RLMFLcircfr, is meant to be a square matrix of the form

Let and . By explicit computation, we find
where is the backward identity matrix of the form

There are many interests in properties and generalization of some special matrices with famous numbers. Jaiswal evaluated some determinants of circulant whose elements are the generalized Fibonacci numbers [13]. Lin gave the determinant of the Fibonacci-Lucas quasi-cyclic matrices [14]. Lind presented the determinants of circulant and skew circulant involving Fibonacci numbers in [15]. Shen et al. [16] discussed the determinant of circulant matrix involving Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. Akbulak and Bozkurt [17] gave the norms of Toeplitz involving Fibonacci and Lucas numbers.

The determinant problems of the row first-minus-last right (RFMLR) circulant matrices and row last-minus-first left (RLMFL) circulant matrices involving the Perrin, Padovan, Tribonacci, and the generalized Lucas sequences are considered in this paper. The exact formulae of determinants are presented by using some terms of these sequences. The techniques used herein are based on the inverse factorization of polynomial.

The Perrin and Padovan sequences and [18–20] are defined by a third-order recurrence:
with the initial conditions , , and , and , , and .

The Tribonacci and the generalized Lucas sequences and [20, 21] are defined by a third-order recurrence:
with the initial conditions , , and and , , and .

The first few members of these sequences are given as follows:
Recurrences (6) and (7) involve the characteristic equation . If its roots are denoted by , , , then the following equalities can be derived:
Moreover, the Binet form for the Perrin sequence is
and the Binet form for Padovan sequence is
where
Recurrences (8) as well imply the characteristic equation . If its roots are denoted by , , , then we have
Furthermore, an exact expression for the th Tribonacci number can be given explicitly by
This can be written in a slightly more concise form (the Binet form) as
where is the th root of the polynomial . And the Binet form for the generalized Lucas sequence is
