EXAMPLE

7 = 5 + 2, and 7^2 = 34 + 13 + 2 -> 21 + 8 + 1 -> 13 + 5 -> 8 + 3 -> 5 + 2.  The total number of Zeckendorf downshifts (i.e., arrows) is 4, so that a(7) = D(7,49) = 4.

MATHEMATICA

zeck[n_Integer] := Block[{k = Ceiling[Log[GoldenRatio, n*Sqrt[5]]], t = n, z = {}},    While[k > 1, If[t >= Fibonacci[k], AppendTo[z, 1]; t = t - Fibonacci[k], AppendTo[z, 0]];

k--]; If[n > 0 && z[[1]] == 0, Rest[z], z]]; d[n1_, n2_] := Module[{z1 = zeck[n1], z2 =

zeck[n2]}, Length[z1] + Length[z2] - 2 (NestWhile[# + 1 &, 1, z1[[#]] == z2[[#]] &, 1,

Min[{Length[z1], Length[z2]}]] - 1)]; lst = Map[d[#, #^2]] &, Range[100]] (* Peter J. C. Moses, May 30 2013 *)
