A181866 a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2. For n >= 3, a(n) is found by concatenating the fourth powers of the first n-1 terms of the sequence and then dividing the resulting number by a(n-1). 9

COMMENTS

The calculations for the first few values of the sequence are

... 2^4 = 16 so a(3) = 116/2 = 58

... 58^4 = 11316496 so a(4) = 11611316496/58 = 200195112.

The value of a(6) is calculated in the Example section below.

For similarly defined sequences see A181754 through A181756 and

FORMULA

DEFINITION

a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2, and for n >= 3

(1)... a(n) = concatenate(a(1)^4,a(2)^4,...,a(n-1)^4)/a(n-1).

RECURRENCE RELATION

For n >= 2

(2)... a(n+2) = a(n+1)^3 + (100^F(n,4))*a(n)

= a(n+1)^3 + (10^F(3*n))*a(n),

where F(n,4) is the Fibonacci polynomial F(n,x) evaluated at x = 4

and where F(n) denotes the n-th Fibonacci number A000045(n).

F(n,4) = A001076(n).

EXAMPLE

The recurrence relation (2) above gives

a(6) = a(5)^3+10^144*a(4)

= 200 19511 20000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00195 11200

37330 42401 44438 01550 47183 94579 01959 53586 66752.

a(6) has 153 digits.
