COMMENTS

I came up with the equation to help analyze the path to stable orbits of the logistic function

f(n+1) = k*n(1-n) for f(n) with n => 9, then f(n)*A072346(n-5) = A072346(n+3).

a(n) is the denominator of f(n). The numerator of f(n) is -1 if n is even, else -16.

FORMULA

a(n) = denominator of the reduced -16/(n*(n-2)*(n+2)*(n-4)).

a(2n) = A052762(n+1).

a(n) = 5*a(n-2) -10*a(n-4) +10*a(n-6) -5*a(n-8) +a(n-10) for n>15. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 27 2010

a(n) = -(-17+15*(-1)^n)*(n*(16-4*n-4*n^2+n^3))/32 for n>3. - Colin Barker, Nov 11 2014

EXAMPLE

f(5) = -16/(7*5*3*1) = -16/105, denominator a(5) = 105.

f(6) = -16/(8*6*4*2) = -1/24, denominator a(6) = 24.

MAPLE

f(n) := n -> (1/((n/4)+(n^2/4)-(n^3/16)-1))/n;
