COMMENTS

Also 13^n sin(2n arctan(2/3)) or numerator of tan(2n arctan(2/3)).

Note that a(n), A067359(n) and 13^n are primitive Pythagorean triples with hypotenuse 13^n.

FORMULA

G.f.: 12*x/(1-10*x+169*x^2). a(n)=10*a(n-1)-169*a(n-2). - Michael Somos, Jun 27 2002

MAPLE

a[1] := 12/5; for n from 1 to 40 do a[n+1] := (12/5+a[n])/(1-12/5*a[n]):od: seq(abs(numer(a[n])), n=1..40); # a[n]=tan(2n arctan(2/3))

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=imag((5+12*I)^n)
