COMMENTS

Standard deviation of A011943.

Product x*y, where the pair (x, y) solves for x^2 - 3y^2 = 1, i.e., a(n)=A001075(n)*A001353(n). - Lekraj Beedassy, Jul 13 2006

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (14,-1).

FORMULA

For all members x of the sequence, 12*x^2 +1 is a square. Lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = 7 + sqrt(12). - Gregory V. Richardson, Oct 13 2002

a(n) = ((7+2*sqrt(12))^(n-1) - (7-2*sqrt(12))^(n-1)) / (2*sqrt(12)). - Gregory V. Richardson, Oct 13 2002

a(n) = 13*(a(n-1) + a(n-2)) - a(n-3). a(n) = 15*(a(n-1) - a(n-2)) + a(n-3). - Mohamed Bouhamida, Sep 20 2006

a(n) = sinh(2n*arcsinh(sqrt(3)))/sqrt(12). - Herbert Kociemba, Apr 24 2008

G.f.: 2x/(1-14*x+x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 17 2008
