%N Spiro-Fibonacci numbers, a(n) = sum of two previous terms that are nearest when terms arranged in a spiral.

%C Or "Spironacci numbers" for short. See also Spironacci polynomials, A265408. This sequence has an interesting growth rate, see A265370 and A265404. - _Antti Karttunen_, Dec 13 2015

%F a(0) = 0, a(1) = 1; for n > 1, a(n) = a(n-1) + a(A265409(n)).

%F equally, for n > 1, a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n - A265359(n)).

%e Terms are written in square boxes radiating spirally (cf. Ulam prime spiral). a(0)=0 and a(1)=1, so write 0 and then 1 to its right. a(2) goes in the box below a(1). The nearest two filled boxes contain a(0) and a(1), so a(2)=a(0)+a(1)=0+1=1. a(3) goes in the box to the left of a(2). The nearest two filled boxes contain a(0) and a(2), so a(3)=a(0)+a(2)=0+1=1.

%e The above description places cells in clockwise direction. However, for the computation of this sequence the actual orientation of the spiral is irrelevant. Following the convention used at A265409, we draw this spiral counterclockwise:

%e +--------+--------+--------+--------+

%e |a(15) |a(14) |a(13) |a(12) |

%e | = a(14)| = a(13)| = a(12)| = a(11)|

%e | + a(4) | + a(3) | + a(2) | + a(2) |

%e | = 9 | = 8 | = 7 | = 6 |

%e +--------+--------+--------+--------+

%e |a(4) |a(3) |a(2) |a(11) |

%e | = a(3) | = a(2) | = a(1) | = a(10)|

%e | + a(0) | + a(0) | + a(0) | + a(2) |

%e | = 1 | = 1 | = 1 | = 5 |

%e +--------+--------+--------+--------+

%e |a(5) | START | ^ |a(10) |

%e | = a(4) | a(0)=0 | a(1)=1 | = a(9) |

%e | + a(0) | --> | | + a(1) |

%e | = 1 | | | = 4 |

%e +--------+--------+--------+--------+

%e |a(6) |a(7) |a(8) |a(9) |

%e | = a(5) | = a(6) | = a(7) | = a(8) |

%e | + a(0) | + a(0) | + a(1) | + a(1) |

%e | = 1 | = 1 | = 2 | = 3 |
