COMMENTS

Conjecture: n such that the characteristic polynomial of M(n) is irreducible over the rationals where M(n) is an n X n matrix with ones on the skew diagonal and below it and the skew line two positions above it and otherwise zeros; see example for one such matrix. Tested up to n=177. - Joerg Arndt, Aug 10 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) +a(n-2) -a(n-3).

a(n) = (10*n-3-(-1)^n)/4, (n>=1). [Corrected by Bruno Berselli, Sep 20 2010]

a(n) = 5*floor((n-1)/2) +3 +(-1)^n. - Gary Detlefs, Mar 02 2010

G.f.: x*(2+2*x+x^2)/((1+x)*(1-x)^2). - Paul Barry, Sep 11 2008

a(n) = 5*n-a(n-1)-4 (with a(1)=2). - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 18 2010

a(n) = floor((5*n-1)/2). - Gary Detlefs, May 14 2011

a(n) = 2*n + floor((n-1)/2). - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Sep 19 2012

Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/a(n) = sqrt(2+2/sqrt(5))*Pi/10 - sqrt(5)*log(phi)/5, where phi is the golden ratio (A001622). - Amiram Eldar, Dec 07 2021

E.g.f.: 1 + ((10*x - 3)*exp(x) - exp(-x))/4. - David Lovler, Aug 23 2022

EXAMPLE

The 7 X 7 matrix (dots for zeros):

[....1.1]

[...1.11]

[..1.111]

[.1.1111]

[1.11111]

[.111111]

[1111111]

has the characteristic polynomial x^7 - 5*x^6 - 4*x^5 + 15*x^4 + 5*x^3 - 11*x^2 - x + 1 which is irreducible over the field of rational numbers, and 7 is a term of the sequence. - Joerg Arndt, Aug 10 2011
