COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = (2+sqrt(3))^8 = 18817+10864*sqrt(3).

LINKS

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (37635, -37635, 1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+16770*x+85*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-37634*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 37634*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+16856.

a(n) = 37635*a(n-1)-37635*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

a(n) = 1/192*((13+4*sqrt(3))*(2+sqrt(3))^(8*n-6)+(13-4*sqrt(3))*(2-sqrt(3))^(8*n-6)-86).

a(n) = floor(1/192*(13+4*sqrt(3))*(2+sqrt(3))^(8*n-6)).

EXAMPLE

The second octagonal number that is also decagonal is 54405. Hence a(2)=54405.
