FORMULA

a(n) = 13*a(n-1) + 104*a(n-2) - 260*a(n-3) - 260*a(n-4) + 104*a(n-5) + 13*a(n-6) - a(n-7) for n > 8.

From Andrew Howroyd, Mar 07 2018: (Start)

a(n) = 14*a(n-1) + 90*a(n-2) - 350*a(n-3) + 90*a(n-4) + 14*a(n-5) - a(n-6) for n > 7.

G.f.: -6*(1 - 3*x - 429*x^2 - 1103*x^3 + 7527*x^4 - 1975*x^5 - 308*x^6 + 22*x^7)/((1 - 3*x + x^2)*(1 + 7*x + x^2)*(1 - 18*x + x^2)).

EXAMPLE

Let u = 2^(1/3), and let p(n,x) be the minimal polynomial of the number given by the n-th continued fraction:

[u,1,1,1,...] has p(0,x)  = -5 - 15 x - 6 x^2 - 9 x^3 + 3 x^5 + x^6, so that a(0) = -6.

[1,u,1,1,1,...] has p(1,x) = -11 + 45 x - 66 x^2 + 35 x^3 + 6 x^4 - 15 x^5 + 5 x^6, so that a(1) = -66;

[1,1,u,1,1,1...] has p(2,x) = 131 - 633 x + 1110 x^2 - 969 x^3 + 456 x^4 - 111 x^5 + 11 x^6, so that a(2) = 1110.

MATHEMATICA

u[n_] := Table[1, {k, 1, n}]; t[n_] := Join[u[n], {2^(1/3)}, {{1}}];

f[n_] := FromContinuedFraction[t[n]];

t = Table[MinimalPolynomial[f[n], x], {n, 0, 30}]
