COMMENTS

a(n+1)/a(n) tends to the golden ratio. [Note added by Joerg Arndt, Mar 16 2013: this is only a conjecture so far!]

Grows slower than the Fibonacci sequence. More complicated than the Fibonacci sequence.

In terms of Dirichlet convolutions the divisibility related table A051731 can be described by the recurrence:

T(n,1)=1, k>1: T(n,k) = (sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k-1)) - 1*(sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k))

The silver means can be found as limiting ratios of the antidiagonal sums of the tables described by the following similar recurrences:

T(n,1)=1, k>1: T(n,k) = (sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k-1)) + 0*(sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k)). --> antidiagonal sums limiting ratio tends to the golden ratio, A001622.

T(n,1)=1, k>1: T(n,k) = (sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k-1)) + 1*(sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k)). --> antidiagonal sums limiting ratio tends to the silver ratio, A014176.

T(n,1)=1, k>1: T(n,k) = (sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k-1)) + 2*(sum from i = 1 to k-1 of T(n-i,k)). --> antidiagonal sums limiting ratio tends to the bronze ratio, A098316

The limiting ratio becomes apparent after the first 275 terms or so, of the antidiagonal sums.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..58.

Mats Granvik, Does this ratio converge to the Golden ratio?

Clear[a, t]; nn = 58; t[n_, 1] = 1; t[n_, k_] := t[n, k] = If[n >= k, Sum[t[n - i, k - 1], {i, 1, k - 1}], 0]; a = Table[Total[Table[t[n - k + 1, k], {k, 1, nn}]], {n, 1, nn}]; a (* Mats Granvik, Apr 27 2013 *)
