A062381 Let A_n be the n X n matrix defined by A_n[i,j] = 1/F(i+j-1) for 1<=i,j<=n where F(k) is the k-th Fibonacci number (A000045). Then a_n = 1/det(A_n). 14

COMMENTS

In the reference it is proved that not only det(A_n) is a reciprocal of an integer but the inverse matrix (A_n)^(-1) is an integer matrix.

FORMULA

a(n) = s(n) * f(n) / h(n)^2, where s(n) = (-1)^Floor[n/2], f(n) = Product[Fibonacci[k]^(n-Abs[k-n]),{k,1,2*n-1}], h(n) = Product[Product[Fibonacci[k],{k,1,m-1}],{m,1,n}]. - Alexander Adamchuk, May 18 2006

a(n) ~ (-1)^floor(n/2) * A253270 * ((1+sqrt(5))/2)^(n*(2*n^2+1)/3) / (A253267^2 * 5^(n/2) * A062073^(2*n-2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 01 2015

EXAMPLE

a(3) = -360 because the matrix is / 1,1,1/2 / 1,1/2, 1/3 / 1/2, 1/3, 1/5 / with determinant -1/360.
