COMMENTS

From Ant King, Oct 31 2011: (Start)

limit n -> infinity, (u(2n+1)/u(2n)) = 1/25*(6937+2832*sqrt(6)).

limit n -> infinity, (u(2n)/u(2n-1)) = 1/25*(217+88*sqrt(6)).

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,9602,-9602,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n+1) = 4801*a(n) + 1100 + 980*sqrt(24*a(n)^2+11*a(n)+1).

G.f.: -z*(z^4+20*z^3+2158*z^2+20*z+1) / ((z-1)*(z^2-98*z+1)*(z^2+98*z+1)). - Richard Choulet, Oct 03 2007, factored by Colin Barker, Feb 07 2015

From Ant King, Oct 31 2011: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + 9602*a(n-2) - 9602*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + a(n-5).

a(n) = 9602*a(n-2) - a(n-4) + 2200.

a(n) = 1/96*((7-2*sqrt(6)*(-1)^n)*(sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))^(4*n-2)+(7+2*sqrt(6)*(-1)^n)*(sqrt(3)-sqrt(2))^(4*n-2)-22).

a(n) = floor(1/96*(7-2*sqrt(6)*(-1)^n)*(sqrt(3)+sqrt(2))^(4n-2)).
