COMMENTS

See A214992 for a discussion of power floor sequence and the power floor function, p1(x) = limit of a(n,x)/x^n. The present sequence is a(n,r), where r = 2+sqrt(6), and the limit p1(r) = 3.77794213613376987528458445727451673384055973517...

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-2,-2).

FORMULA

a(n) = [x*a(n-1)], where x=2+sqrt(6), a(0) = [x].

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3).

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

a(n) = (1/30)*(6 + (57-23*sqrt(6))*(2-sqrt(6))^n + (2+sqrt(6))^n*(57+23*sqrt(6))). - Colin Barker, Nov 13 2017

EXAMPLE

a(0) = [r] = 4, where r = 2+sqrt(6); a(1) = [4*r] = 17; a(2) = [17*r] = 75.

MATHEMATICA

x = 2 + Sqrt[6]; z = 30; (* z = # terms in sequences *)

f[x_] := Floor[x]; c[x_] := Ceiling[x];

p1[0] = f[x]; p2[0] = f[x]; p3[0] = c[x]; p4[0] = c[x];

p1[n_] := f[x*p1[n - 1]]

p2[n_] := If[Mod[n, 2] == 1, c[x*p2[n - 1]], f[x*p2[n - 1]]]

p3[n_] := If[Mod[n, 2] == 1, f[x*p3[n - 1]], c[x*p3[n - 1]]]

p4[n_] := c[x*p4[n - 1]]
