COMMENTS

The digital sum analog (in base 7) of the Fibonacci recurrence. - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 27 2007

a(n) and Fib(n)=A000045(n) are congruent modulo 6 which implies that (a(n) mod 6) is equal to (Fib(n) mod 6) = A082117(n-1) (for n>0). Thus (a(n) mod 6) is periodic with the Pisano period A001175(6)=24. - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 27 2007

For general bases p>2, the inequality 2<=a(n)<=2p-3 holds (for n>2). Actually, a(n)<=11=A131319(7) for the base p=7. - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 27 2007

FORMULA

Periodic from n=3 with period 24. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Mar 13 2006

From Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 27 2007: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1)+a(n-2)-6*(floor(a(n-1)/7)+floor(a(n-2)/7)).

a(n) = floor(a(n-1)/7)+floor(a(n-2)/7)+(a(n-1)mod 7)+(a(n-2)mod 7).

a(n) = (a(n-1)+a(n-2)+6*(A010876(a(n-1))+A010876(a(n-2))))/7.

a(n) = Fib(n)-6*sum{1<k<n, Fib(n-k+1)*floor(a(k)/7)} where Fib(n)=A000045(n). (End)
