COMMENTS

Continued fraction expansion of (3+sqrt(17))/2 is A109007.

a(n) = A082486(n) for n > 1.

The rectangle R whose shape (i.e., length/width) is (3+sqrt(17))/2 can be partitioned into rectangles of shapes 3 and 3/2 in a manner that matches the periodic continued fraction [3, 3/2, 3, 3/2, ...].  R can also be partitioned into squares so as to match the periodic continued fraction [3, 1, 1, 3, 1, 1,...].  For details, see A188635. - Clark Kimberling, May 07 2011
