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)).

(End)

FORMULA

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

G.f.: (z+21*z^2+2178*z^3+2178*z^4+21*z^5+z^6)/((1-z^2)*(1-9602*z^2+z^4)) (the numerator is divisible by 1+z but it is more "symmetric" like that) - Richard Choulet, Oct 03 2007

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))

(End)
