(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A018921 Define the sequence T(a_0,a_1) by a_{n+2} is the greatest integer such that a_{n+2}/a_{n+1}<a_{n+1}/a_n for n >= 0. This is T(4,8). 3

FORMULA

Probably satisfies a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-4).

Empirical G.f.: (4-x^2-2*x^3)/(1-2*x+x^4). [Colin Barker, Feb 08 2012]
