COMMENTS

From Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 12 2009: (Start)

Denominator of x(n)=x(n-1)+x(n-2), x(0)=0, x(1)=1/2; numerator=A167808;

a(n) = A131534(n)+A022003(n) = A080425(n)-A131534(n)+2 = A153727(n)/A131534(n). (End)

Continued fraction expansion of (5+sqrt(85))/10. - Klaus Brockhaus, May 07 2010

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..104.

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,0,1).

FORMULA

a(n+3) = a(n) with a(0)=1, a(1)=a(2)=2.

a(n) = (1/9)*{8*(n mod 3)+5*[(n+1) mod 3]+2*[(n+2) mod 3]}, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Aug 28 2007

G.f.: -(1+2*x+2*x^2)/(x-1)/(x^2+x+1). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 14 2007

Closed form: a(n)=5/3+(2/3)*[ -1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^(-2)*[ -1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n+(2/3)*[ -1/2+(1/2*I) *sqrt(3)]^(-2)*[ -1/2+(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n+(1/3)*[ -1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n+(1/3)*[ -1/2 +(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n+(2/3)*[ -1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^(-1)*[ -1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n+(2/3 )*[ -1/2+(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^(-1)*[ -1/2+(1/2*I)*sqrt(3)]^n, with n>=0 and I=sqrt(-1). - Paolo P. Lava, Jul 17 2008

a(n) = (5-2*cos(2*Pi*n/3))/3. - Jaume Oliver Lafont, Nov 23 2008

a(n) = 2 - 0^(n mod 3). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 12 2009

a(n) = A011655(n) + 1; a(n) = (n^2 mod 3) + 1. - Boris Putievskiy, Feb 03 2013

a(n) = floor((n+1)*5/3) - floor((n)*5/3). - Hailey R. Olafson, Jul 23 2014
