 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 A081482 Consider the mapping f(a/b) = (a^3 +b^3)/(a^2+b^2). Taking a =1, b = 2 to start with and carrying out this mapping repeatedly on each new (reduced) rational number gives the following sequence 1/2,9/5,427/53,39001680/92569,... Sequence contains the denominators. 1

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The mapping f(a/b) = (a + b)/(a - b). Taking a = 2 b = 1 to start with and carrying out this mapping repeatedly on each new (reduced)rational number gives the periodic sequence 2/1,3/1,2/1,3/1,... LINKS CROSSREFS Cf. A081481.
