Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This is the most natural example of the fact that the sum of two periodic continued fractions need not have a periodic continued fraction.

a(n) is the numbers of squares removed at stage n of the continued-fraction partitioning of a rectangle of length L and width W satisfying W=L*sqrt(8); see A188640. - Clark Kimberling, Apr 13 2011
