 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS The sequence a(n) is conjugate with A110523 by the following alternative relations: either ((-1 + i*sqrt(11))/2)^n = A110523(n) + a(n)*(-1 + i*sqrt(11))/2, or ((-1 - i*sqrt(11))/2)^n = A110523(n) + a(n)*(-1 - i*sqrt(11))/2 (see also comments to A110523, where these relations and many other facts on a(n) is presented). Apart from signs, the Lucas U(P=1,Q=3)-sequence. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 24 2012 This is the Lucas U(-1, 3) sequence. (V_n(-1, 3))^2 + 11*(U_n(-1, 3))^2 = 4*Q^n = 4*3^n. For the special case where |U_n(-1, 3)| = 1, then, by the Lucas sequence identity U_2*n = U_n*V_n, we have (U_2*n(-1, 3))^2 + 11 = 4*3^n, true for n = 1, 2, 5, U_n = 1, -1, 1 and U_2*n = -1, 5, -31. E.g., (-31)^2 + 11 = 972 = 4*3^5. - Raphie Frank, Dec 09 2015 REFERENCES R. Witula, On Some Applications of Formulae for Unimodular Complex Numbers, Jacek Skalmierski's Press, Gliwice 2011.
