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”).

COMMENTS

The next terms are non-integer: 11/2,21/2,21/4,41/4,41/8,81/8,81/16,161/16,... Independently on the initial term, the terms get closer and closer to the limit cycle a(n) = d*k/(k-1), a(n+1) = a(n)/2, a(n+2) = a(n+1)+d = a(n); in this case 10,5,10. Inspired by A112876.

FORMULA

From Chai Wah Wu, Sep 11 2018: (Start)

a(n) = (3*a(n-2) - a(n-4))/2 for n > 4.

G.f.: -x*(x + 2)*(69*x^2 - 74)/(x^4 - 3*x^2 + 2). (End)
