 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Let (a_n) be the sequence and (a_(n+1)) the sequence beginning at 1. Let B and iB be the binomial and inverse binomial transforms, respectively. Then B((a_n)) = A001108(n) (a(n)-th triangular number is a square); B((a_(n+1))) = A002315(n) (NSW Numbers); iB((a_(n+1))) = A096980(n). Note: a 2nd sequence generated by the same floretion is A057087 (Scaled Chebyshev U-polynomials evaluated at i. Generalized Fibonacci sequence.). As is often the case with two sequences corresponding to a single floretion, both satisfy the same recurrence relation.
