COMMENTS

Since the absolute value of the discriminant of the characteristic polynomial is prime (=11), the sequence contains every nonnegative integer power of 11 (A001020 is subsequence). Other terms are formed on multiplication of 11^k by sporadic primes.

EXAMPLE

u(1)=1 and u(11)=253. Clearly n divides u(n) for these terms.
