Here is a link to the question:Consider you have a 3x3 matrix like this:

a b 0

0 a b

0 0 a

The question is the explicit formule for the n-th power. It's simple to see that the "a"-s will convert to "a^n" and I've also worked out a formula for the rest of the elements, but those are implicit forms. Can anyone help me with an explicit form of it for the n-th power? Thank you in advance!
