lim(n->Infinity, u(2n+1)/u(2n)) = 1/2(2207+987*sqrt(5)),

lim(n->Infinity, u(2n)/u(2n-1)) = 1/2(47+21*sqrt(5)).

Where L_n is a Lucas number and F_n is Fibonacci number:

lim(n->Infinity, u(2n+1)/u(2n)) = 1/2(L_16+F_16*sqrt(5)),

lim(n->Infinity, u(2n)/u(2n-1)) = 1/2(L_8+F_8*sqrt(5)),

a(n) = L_1*a(n-1)+ L_24*a(n-2) - L_24*a(n-3)- L_1*a(n-4) + L_1*a(n-5).

FORMULA

The two bisections satisfy the same recurrence relation: a(n+2)=103682*a(n+1)-a(n)+18144 or a(n+1)=51841*a(n)+9072+2898*(320*a(n)^2+112*a(n)+9)^0.5. The g.f. satisfies f(z)=(z+55*z^2+18088*z^3+18088*z^4+55*z^5+z^6)/((1-z^2)*(1-103682*z^2+z^4)=1*z+55*z^2+121771*z^3+... - Richard Choulet, Sep 20 2007

From Ant King, Oct 18 2011: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1)+103682a(n-2)-103682a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5)

a(n) = 1/80*((3-sqrt(5)*(-1)^n)*(2+sqrt(5))^(4n-2)+(3+sqrt(5)*(-1)^n)*(2-sqrt(5))^(4n-2)-14)

a(n) = floor(1/80*(3-sqrt(5)*(-1)^n)*(2+sqrt(5))^(4n-2))

G.f.: x(1+54*x+18034*x^2+54*x^3+x^4)/((1-x)(1-322*x+x^2)(1+322*x+x^2))
