Keywords: (s,t)-Pell sequence, (s,t)-Pell Lucas sequence, (s,t)-modified Pell sequence, eigenvalue


In this study, we define some tridigional matrices depending on two real parameters. By using the determinant of these matrices, the elements of (s,t)-Pell, (s,t)-Pell Lucas and (s,t)-modified Pell sequences with even or odd indices are generated. Then we construct the inverse matrices of these tridigional matrices. We also investigate eigenvalues of these matrices.
