COMMENTS

From Wolfdieter Lang, Nov 08 2002: (Start)

Chebyshev's polynomials U(n,x) evaluated at x=10.

The a(n) give all (unsigned, integer) solutions of Pell equation b(n)^2 - 99*a(n)^2 = +1 with b(n)= A001085(n). (End)

For n>=2, a(n) equals the permanent of the (n-1) X (n-1) tridiagonal matrix with 20's along the main diagonal, and i's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal (i is the imagianry unit). - John M. Campbell, Jul 08 2011

For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of 01-avoiding words of length n-1 on alphabet {0,1,...,19}. Milan Janjic, Jan 25 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = ((10+3*sqrt(11))^n - (10-3*sqrt(11))^n) / (6*sqrt(11)).

a(n) = 20*a(n-1) - a(n-2), n>=1, a(0)=0, a(1)=1.

a(n) = S(n-1, 20), with S(n, x) := U(n, x/2), Chebyshev's polynomials of the second kind. S(-1, x) := 0. See A049310.

G.f.: x/(1 - 20*x + x^2).

a(n) = sqrt((A001085(n)^2 - 1)/99).

Lim_{n->inf.} a(n)/a(n-1) = 10 + 3*sqrt(11).

a(n+1) = sum_{k=0..n} A101950(n,k)*19^k. - Philippe Deléham, Feb 10 2012

Product_{n>=1} (1 + 1/a(n)) = 1/3*(3 + sqrt(11)). - Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012

Product_{n>=2} (1 - 1/a(n)) = 3/20*(3 + sqrt(11)). - Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012
