This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 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. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Used in A099372. The proper and improper nonnegative solutions of the Pell equation x(n)^2 - 85*y(n)^2 = +4 are x(n) = a(n) and y(n) = 9*A097839(n), n >= 0. - Wolfdieter Lang, Jul 01 2013 LINKS Indranil Ghosh, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..520 Tanya Khovanova, Recursive Sequences Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (83,-1). FORMULA a(n) = 83*a(n-1) - a(n-2), n >= 1; a(-1) = 83, a(0) = 2. a(n) = S(n, 83) - S(n-2, 83) = 2*T(n, 83/2) with S(n, x) := U(n, x/2), S(-1, x) := 0, S(-2, x) := -1. S(n, 83)= A097839(n). U-, resp. T-, are Chebyshev's polynomials of the second, resp. first, case. See A049310 and A053120. G.f.: (2-83*x)/(1-83*x+x^2). a(n) = ap^n + am^n, with ap := (83+9*sqrt(85))/2 and am := (83-9*sqrt(85))/2. EXAMPLE Pell equation: n=0: 2^2 - 85*0^2 = +4 (improper), n=1: 83^2 - 85*(9*1)^2 = +4, n=2: 6887^2 - 85*(9*83)^2 = +4. - Wolfdieter Lang, Jul 01 2013 CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A225807 A232770 A317724 * A169601 A205643 A215263 Adjacent sequences:  A099370 A099371 A099372 * A099374 A099375 A099376 KEYWORD nonn,easy AUTHOR Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 18 2004 STATUS approved
