J. Mathar, Aug 10 2012 This is the Lucas sequence V(3,-5). - Bruno Berselli, Jan 09 2013 LINKS Wikipedia, Lucas sequence: Specific names. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,5). 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 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 a(n) = [x^n] ( (1 + 3*x + sqrt(1 + 6*x + 29*x^2))/2 )^n for n >= 1. - Peter Bala, Jun 23 2015 EXAMPLE a(5)=5*b(4)+b(6): 1293=5*57+1008.
