Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The a(n) terms of this sequence can be constructed with the terms of sequence A049666. For the terms of the periodical sequence of the continued fraction for sqrt(125) see A010186. We observe that its period is five. - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 12 2010

FORMULA

a(5*n) = A049666(3*n+1), a(5*n+1) = (A049666(3*n+2) - A049666(3*n+1))/2, a(5*n+2) = (A049666(3*n+2)+A049666(3*n+1))/2, a(5*n+3):= A049666(3*n+2) and a(5*n+4) = A049666(3*n+3)/2. - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 12 2010

G.f.: -(x^8 -5*x^7 +6*x^6 -11*x^5 +61*x^4 +11*x^3 +6*x^2 +5*x +1) / ((x^2 +4*x -1)*(x^4 -7*x^3 +19*x^2 -3*x +1)*(x^4 +3*x^3 +19*x^2 +7*x +1)). - Colin Barker, Nov 12 2013

a(n) = 1364*a(n-5) + a(n-10). - Vincenzo Librandi, Dec 13 2013
