COMMENTS

Continued fraction for (3+sqrt(15))/6. - Philippe Deléham, Sep 25 2006

This sequence can be generated by an infinite number of formulas all having the form a^(b*n) mod c subject to the following conditions. The number a can be congruent to either 3,5 or 6 mod 7. If a is congruent to 3 or 5 mod 7 then b can be any number of the form 3*k+6. If a is congruent to 6 mod 7 then b can be any number of the form 2k+1. Finally, if a is congruent to either 6, 26, or 31 mod 35 then c can be 7 or 35; otherwise, we use c = 7. For example: a(n) = 33^(15*n) mod 7, a(n) = 31^(9*n) mod 7, and a(n) = 31^(9*n) mod 35. - Gary Detlefs, May 19 2014
