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.

COMMENTS

For n>=7, round(c^prime(n)) == 1 (mod 2*prime(n)). Proof in Shevelev link. In particular, all terms are even.

FORMULA

All roots of the equation x^7-x^6-x^5-x^4-x^3-x^2-x-1 = 0

are the following: c=1.9919641966050350211,

-0.78418701799584451319 +/- 0.36004972226381653409*i,

-0.24065633852269642508 + /- 0.84919699909267892575*i,

  0.52886125821602342773 +/-  0.76534196109589443115*i.

Absolute values of all roots, except for septanacci constant c, are less than 1.

Conjecture. Absolute values of all roots of the equation x^n - x^(n-1) - ... -x - 1 = 0, except for n-bonacci constant c_n, are less than 1. If the conjecture is valid, then for sufficiently large k=k(n), for all m>=k, we have round(c_n^prime(m)) == 1 (mod 2*prime(m)) (cf. Shevelev link).
