COMMENTS

Together with A002310 these are the two sequences satisfying ( a(n)^2+a(n-1)^2 )/(1 - a(n)a(n-1)) is an integer, in both cases this integer is -5. - Floor van Lamoen, Oct 26 2001

FORMULA

Sequences A002310, A002320 and A049685 have this in common: each one satisfies a(n+1) = (a(n)^2+5)/a(n-1) - Graeme McRae, Jan 30 2005

G.f.: (1-2x)/(1-5x+x^2). [From Philippe Deléham, Nov 16 2008]

a(n)=-(1/42)*sqrt(21)*[(5/2)-(1/2)*sqrt(21)]^n+(1/42)*[(5/2)+(1/2)*sqrt(21)]^n*sqrt(21)+(1/2)*[(5/2) +(1/2)*sqrt(21)]^n+(1/2)*[(5/2)-(1/2)*sqrt(21)]^n, with n>=0 [From Paolo P. Lava, Nov 21 2008]
