COMMENTS

Literally the same as A013655(n+1), since A001060(-1) = A013655(0) = 3. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jun 30 2017

Used by the Sofia Gubaidulina and other composers. - Ian Stewart, Jun 07 2012

From a(2) on, sums of five consecutive Fibonacci numbers; the subset of primes is essentially in A153892. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 24 2010

Pisano period lengths: 1, 3, 8, 6, 20, 24, 16, 12, 24, 60, 10, 24, 28, 48, 40, 24, 36, 24, 18, 60, ... (is this A001175?). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 10 2012

Also the number of independent vertex sets and vertex covers in the (n+1)-pan graph. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jun 30 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*Fibonacci(n) + Fibonacci(n+3). - Zerinvary Lajos, Oct 05 2007

a(n) = Fibonacci(n+4) - Fibonacci(n-1) for n >= 1. - Ian Stewart, Jun 07 2012

a(n) = Fibonacci(n) + 2*Fibonacci(n+2) = 5*Fibonacci(n) + 2*Fibonacci(n-1). The ratio r(n) := a(n+2)/a(n) satisfies the recurrence r(n+1) = (2*r(n) - 1)/(r(n) - 1). If M denotes the 2 X 2 matrix [2, -1; 1, -1] then [a(n+2), a(n)] = M^n[2, -1]. - Peter Bala, Dec 06 2013

a(n) = 6*F(n) + F(n-3), for F(n)=A000045. - J. M. Bergot, Jul 14 2017

MAPLE

with(combinat): a:= n-> 2*fibonacci(n)+fibonacci(n+3): seq(a(n), n=0..40); # Zerinvary Lajos, Oct 05 2007

A001060:=-(2+3*z)/(-1+z+z**2); # conjectured by Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation
