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.

A215817 a(n) is the rational part of A(n) = (6-sqrt(7))*A(n-1) - (12-4*sqrt(7))*A(n-2) + (8-3*sqrt(7))*A(n-3) with A(0)=3, A(1)=6-sqrt(7), A(2)=19-4*sqrt(7). 7

COMMENTS

The Berndt-type sequence number 14 for the argument 2Pi/7 defined by requiring a(n) to be the rational part of the trigonometric sum A(n) := c(1)^(2*n) + c(2)^(2*n) + c(4)^(2*n), where c(j) := 2*cos(Pi/4 + 2*Pi*j/7) = 2*cos((7+8*j)*Pi/28). We note that (A(n)-a(n))/sqrt(7) = A215877(n) are all integers. We have A(n)=2^n*O(n;i/2), where O(n;d) denote the big omega function with index n for the argument d in C defined in comments to A215794 (see also Witula-Slota's paper - Section 6). From the respective recurrence relation for this function we generate the title recurrence for A(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = rational part of c(1)^(2n) + c(2)^(2n) + c(4)^(2n) = (1-s(1))^n + (1-s(2))^n + (1-s(4))^n, where c(j) := 2*cos((7+8*j)/28) and s(j) := sin(2*Pi*j/7).
