### Abstract

The Padovan sequence is a sequence similar to the Fibonacci sequence, the former being third order and the latter second. Having several applications in architecture, these numbers are directly related to plastic numbers. In this paper, the Padovan sequence is studied and investigated from the standpoint of linear algebra. With this, we will study the matrix and the generating function of the extensions of this sequence (Tridovan and Tetradovan), thus determining the generalization of this sequence.
