COMMENTS

lim(n -> Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = (sqrt(2) + sqrt(3))^8 = 4801 + 1960*sqrt(6). - Ant King, Nov 06 2011

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..9.

Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Pentagonal Square Number

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9603,-9603,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 9602*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 200; g.f.: x*(1+198*x+x^2)/((1-x)*(1-9602*x+x^2)). - Warut Roonguthai, Jan 05 2001

a(n+1) = 4801*a(n)+100+980*(24*a(n)^2+a(n))^0.5. - Richard Choulet, Sep 21 2007

From Ant King, Nov 06 2011: (Start)

a(n) = floor(1/96*(sqrt(2) + sqrt(3))^(8n-4)).

a(n) = 9603*a(n-1) - 9603*a(n-2) + a(n-3). (End)
