 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS This is the case k=1 of the identity L(n)^2 + 5*F(k)^2*(-1)^(n+k) = L(n+k)*L(n-k), where F = A000045. See also the comment in A292612. REFERENCES Steven Vajda, Fibonacci and Lucas Numbers, and the Golden Section: Theory and Applications, Dover Publications (2008), page 29 (the formula 20b, for h=-k, gives the identity in Comments section).

FORMULA G.f.: (-1 + 8*x - 6*x^2)/((1 + x)*(1 - 3*x + x^2)). a(n) = a(-n) = 2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3). a(n) = -A001654(n+1) + 8*A001654(n) - 6*A001654(n-1) with A001654(-1)=0. a(n) = L(2*n) - 3*(-1)^n. Sum_{i=0..n} a(i) = L(2*n+1) - (3*(-1)^n + 1)/2. a(n) = 2^(-n)*(-3*(-2)^n + (3-sqrt(5))^n + (3+sqrt(5))^n). - Colin Barker, Sep 21 2017 From Peter Bala, Oct 14 2019: (Start) Sum_{n >= 1} L(n)/a(n) = 3/2. Sum_{n >= 1} (-1)^n*L(n)/a(n) = 1/2.  (End) From Amiram Eldar, Oct 06 2020: (Start) Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 1/2. Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^n/a(n) = 7/10 - 2*phi/5, where phi is the golden ratio (A001622).
