Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The Berndt-type sequence number 10 for the argument 2Pi/7 defined by the first trigonometric relation from section "Formula". For additional informations and particularly connections with another sequences of trigonometric nature - see comments to A215512 (a(n) is equal to the sequence c(n) in these comments) and Witula-Slota's reference (Section 3).

The following summation formula hold true (see comments to A215512): Sum{k=3,..,n} a(k) = 5*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 1, n=3,4,...

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-6,1).

FORMULA

sqrt(7)*a(n) = s(1)*c(1)^(2*n) + s(2)*c(2)^(2*n) + s(4)*c(4)^(2*n), where c(j):=2*cos(2*Pi*j/7) and s(j):=2*sin(2*Pi*j/7).

G.f.: (1-5*x+4*x^2)/(1-5*x+6*x^2-x^3).

a(n) = A005021(n) - 5*A005021(n-1) + 4*A005021(n-2). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 22 2012

EXAMPLE

We have a(8)=3*a(7)+3*a(5)-6*a(2) and a(9)=3*a(8)+3*a(6)-3*a(4)-a(1).
