COMMENTS

a(0)=3 is the smallest integer generating an increasing sequence of the form a(n) = a(n-1)^2 - a(n-1) - 1, cf. A144743.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..7.

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1)^2 - a(n-1) - 1 and a(0)=6.

a(n) ~ c^(2^n), where c = 5.33565954034691307256446890777476398311129407641143635105306409567572... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 06 2015
