Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

As n increases, the ratios of consecutive terms settle into an approximate 2-cycle with a(n)/a(n-1) bounded above and below by 1/9*(329+104*sqrt(10)) and 1/9*(89+28*sqrt(10)) respectively.

LINKS

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,1442,-1442,-1,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x(1+11*x-604*x^2+49*x^3+3*x^4) / ((1-x)*(1-38*x+x^2)*(1+38*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 1442*a(n-2)-a(n-4)-540.

a(n) = a(n-1)+1442*a(n-2)-1442*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5).

a(n) = 1/80*((sqrt(10)-(-1)^n)*(5-sqrt(10))* (3+sqrt(10))^(2*n-1)-(sqrt(10)+(-1)^n)*(5+sqrt(10))*(3-sqrt(10))^(2*n-1)+30).

a(n) = ceiling(1/80*(sqrt(10)-(-1)^n)*(5-sqrt(10))*(3+sqrt(10))^(2*n-1))

EXAMPLE

The second decagonal number that is also heptagonal is A001107(12)=540. Hence a(2)=12.
