COMMENTS

a(n) are the row sums of the elements of the Golden Triangle (A180662) with alternating signs. [Alexander Adamchuk, Oct 18 2010]

A002570(n)/A002571(n) approaches 1/sqrt(5) as n->infinity. - Sean A. Irvine, Apr 09 2014

FORMULA

Appears to have g.f. x/[(1-3x+x^2)(1+x)^2]. - Ralf Stephan, Apr 14 2004

a(n) = (-1)^n*Sum[(-1)^(i+1)*(Fibonacci[i]*Fibonacci[i+1]),{i,1,n+1}] - Alexander Adamchuk, Jun 16 2006

From Paul D. Hanna, Feb 20 2009: (Start)

Given g.f. A(x), then log(1+A(x)) = Sum_{n>=1} A000204(n)^2 * x^n/n where A000204 is the Lucas numbers.

a(n) = (1/n)*[A000204(n)^2 + Sum_{k=1..n-1} A000204(k)^2*a(n-k)] for n>1, with a(1) = 1. (End)

G.f.: -1 + 1/Product_{n>=1} (1 - Lucas(n)*x^n + (-1)^n*x^(2*n))^A006206(n), where A006206(n) is the number of aperiodic binary necklaces of length n with no subsequence 00. [Paul D. Hanna, Jan 07 2012]

a(n) = 8*a(n-2) - 8*a(n-4) + a(n-6) + 2(-1)^n, n>6. - Sean A. Irvine, Apr 09 2014

a(n) - a(n-2) = Fibonacci(n+1)^2. - Peter Bala, Aug 30 2015

EXAMPLE

From Paul D. Hanna, Feb 20 2009: (Start)

G.f.: A(x) = x + 5*x^2 + 10*x^3 + 30*x^4 + 74*x^5 + 199*x^6 +...

log(1+A(x)) = x + 3^2*x^2/2 + 4^2*x^3/3 + 7^2*x^4/4 + 11^2*x^5/5 +... (End)

G.f.: A(x) = -1 + 1/((1-x-x^2) * (1-3*x^2+x^4) * (1-4*x^3-x^6) * (1-7*x^4+x^8) * (1-11*x^5-x^10)^2 * (1-18*x^6+x^12)^2 * (1-29*x^7-x^14)^4 * (1-47*x^8+x^16)^5 * (1-76*x^9-x^18)^8 *...* (1 - Lucas(n)*x^n + (-1)^n*x^(2*n))^A006206(n) *...). [Paul D. Hanna, Jan 07 2012]
