COMMENTS

Inverse of the Lucas sequence (A000032), nearly, since a(Lucas(n))=n for n>=1 (see A130242 and A130247 for other versions). For n>=2, a(n)+1 is equal to the partial sum of the Lucas indicator sequence (see A102460). Identical to A130247 except for n=2.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(log_phi((n+sqrt(n^2+4))/2))=floor(arcsinh(n/2)/log(phi)) where phi=(1+sqrt(5))/2.
a(n) = A130242(n+1)1 for n>=2. a(n)=A130247(n) except for n=2.
G.f.: g(x)=1/(1x)*sum{k>=1, x^Lucas(k)}.
a(n) = floor(log_phi(n+1/2)) for n>=2, where phi is the golden ratio.


EXAMPLE

a(10)=4, since Lucas(4)=7<=10 but Lucas(5)=11>10.
