Abstract

The summatory function of a q-regular sequence in the sense of Allouche and Shallit is analysed asymptotically. The result is a sum of periodic fluctuations multiplied by a scaling factor. Each summand corresponds to an eigenvalues of absolute value larger than the joint spectral radius of the matrices of a linear representation of the sequence. The Fourier coefficients of the fluctuations are expressed in terms of residues of the corresponding Dirichlet generating function. A known pseudo Tauberian argument is extended in order to overcome convergence problems in Mellin-Perron summation. Two examples are discussed in more detail: The case of sequences defined as the sum of outputs written by a transducer when reading a q-ary expansion of the input and the number of odd entries in the rows of Pascal's rhombus.
