 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Purely real values from the sequence generated by (1 + i)^k where i = sqrt(-1) and k is a real nonnegative integer. This sequence gives the values of (1 + i)^k when k is a multiple of 4. When k = 2 mod 4, (1 + i)^k is purely imaginary, and when k is odd, (1 + i)^k has both a real and an imaginary part, and abs(Re((1 + i)^k)) = abs(Im((1 + i)^k)). LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-4). FORMULA a(n) = (-4)^n. G.f.: 1/(1 + 4 * x).
