COMMENTS

a(n)^2 - 8*b(n)^2 = 17, with the companion sequence b(n)= A054488(n).

The odd part is A077239(n) with Diophantine companion A077413(n).

Index entries for sequences related to Chebyshev polynomials.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - a(n-2), a(-1) = 7, a(0) = 5.

a(n) = T(n+1, 3)+2*T(n, 3), with T(n, x) Chebyshev's polynomials of the first kind, A053120. T(n, 3)= A001541(n).

G.f.: (5-7*x)/(1-6*x+x^2).

a(n) = (((3-2*sqrt(2))^n*(-4+5*sqrt(2))+(3+2*sqrt(2))^n*(4+5*sqrt(2))))/(2*sqrt(2)). - Colin Barker, Oct 12 2015

EXAMPLE

23 = a(1) = sqrt(8*A054488(1)^2 + 17) = sqrt(8*8^2 + 17)= sqrt(529) = 23.
