COMMENTS

One of two sequences involving the Lucas/Fibonacci numbers. This sequence consists of pairs of numbers more or less close to each other with "jumps" in between pairs.

a(n+3) + a(n) - a(n+2) appears to be mysteriously connected with a(n+1).

Both this sequence and A099255 were created using "Floretion dynamical symmetries" (see link for further details).

LINKS

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,3,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(2n+2) - a(2n+1) = F(2n-1).

A099255(n)/2 - a(n)/2 = (-1)^n*A000032(n)

a(0) = 3, a(1) = 8, a(2) = 9, a(3) = 23, a(n+4) = 3a(n+2) - a(n).

a(2n) = A022086(2n+2), a(2n+1) = A022097(2n+2).

a(n) = A013655(n+2)-A061084(n+1).
