Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Greene discusses the whole family of sequences defined by a rule of the form a(n) = (Sum_{i=1..k} c_i a(i))/ (Sum_{i=1..k} c_i) if (Sum_{i=1..k} c_i) divides (Sum_{i=1..k} c_i a(i)), a(n) = (Sum_{i=1..k} c_i a(i)) if not, where k and the c_i are nonnegative integers and a(0), ..., a(k-1) are specified initial terms. Many further examples of such sequences could be added to the OEIS!
