A178134 A generalized Lucas-binomial Fibonacci sequence based on A176263: a0=5 a(n)=Sum[A176263[n - m - 1, m, a0], {m, 0, Floor[(n - 1)/2]}] 0

COMMENTS

The limiting ratio is (alternating towards):2.7912878474779.

What makes this sequence interesting is that it is based on a generalization of

both Fibonacci types and Lucas -binomial Fibonacci types to give

what appears to be a new approach to ratio-ed sequences.

Both A000800,A004148 are this type of sequence, but where the Narayana (1,3,1)based one has ratio 1+Phi,

the Eulerian (1,4,1) based one never gets a steady ratio limit.

This sequence is an signed {1,4,1} type that gets a steady ratio limit.

FORMULA

G.f. -x*(1-6*x^2-10*x^3-5*x^4+5*x^5) / ( (x-1)*(1+x)*(5*x^2+x-1)*(5*x^4+x^2-1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 05 2012

MATHEMATICA

Clear[a, f, a0, t]

f[0, a_] := 0; f[1, a_] := 1;

f[n_, a_] := f[n, a] = f[n - 1, a] + a*f[n - 2, a];

t[n_, m_, a_] := f[m + 1, a] + f[n + 1 - m, a] - f[n + 1, a];

a = 5;

a0[n_] := Sum[t[n - m - 1, m, a], {m, 0, Floor[(n - 1)/2]}];
