FORMULA

a(3n-3) = 1, a(3n-2) = A085447(2n-1) - 1, a(3n-1) = A085447(2n) - 1, for n>=1 [conjecture].

a(n) = 39*a(n-3)-39*a(n-6)+a(n-9). G.f.: -(x^2-x+1) * (x^6 -6*x^5 -6*x^4 -2*x^3 +42*x^2 +6*x +1) / ((x-1)*(x^2+x+1)*(x^6-38*x^3+1)). [Colin Barker, Jan 20 2013]

From Peter Bala, Jan 25 2013: (Start)

The above conjectures are correct. The real number exp( Sum {n>=1} 1/(n*A085447(n)) ) is equal to the infinite product F(x) := product {n >= 0} (1 + x^(4*n+3))/(1 - x^(4*n+1)) evaluated at x = sqrt(10) - 3. Ramanujan has given a continued fraction expansion for the product F(x). Using this we can find the simple continued fraction expansion of the numbers F(1/2*(sqrt(N^2 + 4) - N)), N a positive integer. The present case is when N = 6. See the Bala link for details.

The theory also provides the simple continued fraction expansion of the numbers F({sqrt(10) - 3}^(2*k+1)), k = 1, 2, 3, ...: if [1; c(1), c(2), 1, c(3), c(4), 1, ...] denotes the present sequence then the simple continued fraction expansion of F({sqrt(10) - 3}^(2*k+1)) is given by [1; c(2*k+1), c(2*(2*k+1)), 1, c(3*(2*k+1)), c(4*(2*k+1)), 1, ...].

EXAMPLE

Let L = Sum_{n>=1} 1/(n*A085447(n)) or, more explicitly,

L = 1/6 + 1/(2*38) + 1/(3*234) + 1/(4*1442) + 1/(5*8886) +...

so that L = 0.1814484777922995750614847484088330644558009487798...

then exp(L) = 1.1989527624251050123398509513177598419795554140316...

equals the continued fraction given by this sequence:

exp(L) = [1;5,37,1,233,1441,1,8885,54757,1,337433,...]; i.e.,

exp(L) = 1 + 1/(5 + 1/(37 + 1/(1 + 1/(233 + 1/(1441 + 1/(1 +...)))))).

Compare these partial quotients to A085447(n), n=1,2,3,...:

[6,38,234,1442,8886,54758,337434,2079362,12813606,78960998,...].
