COMMENTS

Generally, F(n)*L(n+k) = F(2*n + k) + F(k)*(-1)^(n+1):

if k=0 the sequence is A001906, if k=1 it is A081714.

For n>2, a(n) is twice the area of the triangle with vertices at (F(n-3), F(n-2)), (F(n-1), F(n)), and (L(n), L(n-1)), where F(n)=A000045(n) and L(n)=A000032(n). - J. M. Bergot, May 22 2014

a(n) is the maximum area of a quadrilateral with lengths of sides in order L(n-2), L(n-2), F(n), F(n) for n>2. - J. M. Bergot, Jan 28 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = F(2*(n-1)) - (-1)^(n+1), assuming F(0)=0 and L(0)=2.

From R. J. Mathar, Apr 16 2009: (Start)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3).

G.f.: x*(-1+4*x)/((1+x)*(x^2-3*x+1)). (End)

a(n+1) = - A116697(2*n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 25 2011

a(-n) = - A128533(n). - Michael Somos, May 26 2014

0 = a(n)*(+4*a(n) + a(n+1) - 17*a(n+2)) + a(n+1)*(-14*a(n+1) + a(n+2)) + a(n+2)*(+4*a(n+2)) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, May 26 2014

a(n) = ((-1)^n+(2^(-1-n)*(-(3-sqrt(5))^n*(3+sqrt(5))-(-3+sqrt(5))*(3+sqrt(5))^n)) / sqrt(5)). - Colin Barker, Sep 28 2016

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 143 because F(7)*L(5) = 13*11.

G.f. = -x + 2*x^2 + 2*x^3 + 9*x^4 + 20*x^5 + 56*x^6 + 143*x^7 + ...
