COMMENTS

Previous name was: Consider pairs of fractions (x,y) starting (4,3) and updated via z:=1/(1/x+1/y), x->x-z, y->y-z. The sequence shows the triples (numerator(x), numerator(y), numerator(x)-numerator(y)) after each update.

FORMULA

a(3*n+1) = 4^(2^n), a(3*n+2) = 3^(2^n), a(3*n+3) = 4^(2^n) - 3^(2^n). - Philippe Deléham , Oct 29 2013

EXAMPLE

(x=4,y=3) is shown as the first triple (4,3,1) in the sequence. This generates z=12/7 which generates the new pair (x,y) = (16/7,9/7) shown as (16,9,7). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 09 2011

MAPLE

x := 4 ; y := 3 ;

for loo from 1 to 7 do printf("%d, %d, %d, ", numer(x), numer(y), numer(x)-numer(y)) ; z := 1/(1/x+1/y) ; x := x-z ; y := y-z ; end do: # R. J. Mathar, Feb 09 2011
