Keywords: Pell-Padovan sequence, Fibonacci sequence, Toeplitz-Hessenberg matrix, Trudi's formula

In this paper, we find new relations involving the Pell-Padovan sequence which arise as determinants of certain families of Toeplitz-Hessenberg matrices. These determinant formulas may be rewritten as identities involving sums of products of Pell-Padovan numbers and multinomial coefficients. In particular, we establish four connection formulas between the Pell-Padovan and the Fibonacci sequences via Toeplitz-Hessenberg determinants.
