COMMENTS

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = (2+sqrt(3))^4 = 97+56*sqrt(3).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..14.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (195, -195, 1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1-78*x+5*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-194*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 194*a(n-1)-a(n-2)-72.

a(n) = 195*a(n-1)-195*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

a(n) = 1/48*((sqrt(3)+6)*(2+sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)-(sqrt(3)-6)*(2-sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)+18).

a(n) = ceiling(1/48*(sqrt(3)+6)*(2+sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)).

EXAMPLE

The second decagonal number that is also octagonal is A001107(117) = 54405. Hence a(2) = 117.
