COMMENTS

The recurrence for b(n) is similar to Fibonacci except for the reciprocal.

An infinite coprime sequence defined by recursion. - Michael Somos, Dec 14 2017

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..13.

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) * a(n-2) + a(n-1) * a(n-3) * a(n-4) - a(n-2) * a(n-3)^2 * a(n-4) for all n>=4.

a(n) = numerator of b(n) where b(0) = b(1) = 1, b(n) = b(n-1) + 1/b(n-2).

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := Which[ n < 1, Boole[n == 0], n < 4, n, True, a[n - 1] a[n - 2] + a[n - 3] Product[ a[k], {k, 0, n - 4}]^2];

Numerator@ RecurrenceTable[{a[n] == a[n - 1] + 1/a[n - 2], a[0] == a[1] == 1}, a, {n, 0, 13}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Dec 11 2017 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = if( n<1, n==0, n<4, n, a(n-1) * a(n-2) + a(n-3) * prod(k=0, n-4, a(k))^2)};
