Inverse binomial transform of A087130. - Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 01 2010

Pisano period lengths: 1, 3, 4, 6, 4, 12, 3, 12, 12, 12, 120, 12, 12, 3, 4, 24, 288, 12, 72, 12... - R. J. Mathar, Aug 10 2012

This is the Lucas sequence V(3,-5). - Bruno Berselli, Jan 09 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*A015523(n+1)-3*A015523(n).

a(n) = ((3+sqrt(29))/2)^n + ((3-sqrt(29))/2)^n.

G.f.: (2-3*x)/(1-3*x-5*x^2). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 06 2010

Contribution from Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 01 2010: (Start)

Limit(a(n+k)/a(k), k=infinity) = (A072263(n)+A015523(n)*sqrt(29))/2

Limit(A072263(n)/A015523(n)) = sqrt(29). (End)

G.f.: G(0), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(29*k-9)/(x*(29*k+20) - 6/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jun 17 2013

EXAMPLE

a(5)=5*b(4)+b(6): 1293=5*57+1008.

PROG

(Sage) [lucas_number2(n, 3, -5) for n in xrange(0, 16)]# [From Zerinvary Lajos, Apr 30 2009]
