 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The Berndt-type sequence number 10 for the argument 2Pi/9 defined by the first trigonometric relation from the section "Formula" below. The sequence a(n) is connected with sequences A215917 and A215885 - see the respective formula. We have A035045(n)=abs(a(n+1)/3) for every n=0,1,...,5 and A035045(7) + a(7)/3 = 1, A035045(8) - a(8)/3 = 10, A035045(9) + a(9)/3 = 63, and A035045(10) - a(10)/3 = 320 - all these four results-numbers are in A069269.

FORMULA a(n) = c(1)*(-c(2))^(-n) + c(2)*(-c(4))^(-n) + c(4)*(-c(1))^(-n), where c(j) := 2*cos(2*Pi*j/9). a(n) = A215917(n+1) + A215917(n) - 2*(-1)^n*A215885(n). G.f.: -3*x*(1-x)/(1+3*x-x^3). EXAMPLE We have a(2)=-4*a(1), a(3)=-3*a(2), a(6)/a(3) = -24.25, and a(9) = 579*a(3). MATHEMATICA LinearRecurrence[{-3, 0, 1}, {0, -3, 12}, 50] CROSSREFS Cf. A215917, A215885, A215664.
