Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,18,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(2n-1) = ceiling(1/(4/(Fibonacci(6n)*sqrt(5)-Lucas(6n)+2)-2)), a(2n) = ceiling(1/(1-2/(Fibonacci(6n+3)*sqrt(5)-Lucas(6n+3)+2))-2). - Thomas Baruchel

G.f.: (4+9*x+4*x^2-x^3)/(1-18*x^2+x^4).

From Gerry Martens, Jul 11 2015: (Start)

Interspersion of 2 sequences [a0(n),a1(n)] for n>0 :

a0(n) = -((2+sqrt(5))/(9+4*sqrt(5))^n)+(-2+sqrt(5))*(9+4*sqrt(5))^n.

a1(n) = (1/(9+4*sqrt(5))^n+(9+4*sqrt(5))^n)/2. (End)

Numerator[Convergents[Sqrt[20], 30]] (* Vincenzo Librandi, Oct 28 2013 *)

a0[n_] := -((2+Sqrt[5])/(9+4*Sqrt[5])^n)+(-2+Sqrt[5])*(9+4*Sqrt[5])^n //Simplify

a1[n_] := (1/(9+4*Sqrt[5])^n+(9+4*Sqrt[5])^n)/2 // Simplify
