%N Self-convolution of Fibonacci numbers.

%C Number of elements in all subsets of {1,2,...,n-1} with no consecutive integers. Example: a(5)=10 because the subsets of {1,2,3,4} that have no consecutive elements, i.e., {},{1},{2},{3},{4},{1,3},{1,4},{2,4}, the total number of elements is 10. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Dec 10 2003

%C If g is either of the real solutions to x^2-x-1=0, g'=1-g is the other one and phi is any 2 X 2-matricial solution to the same equation, not of the form gI or g'I, then Sum'_{i+j=n-1} g^i phi^j = F_n + (A001629(n) - A001629(n-1)g')*(phi-g'I), where i,j >= 0, F_n is the n-th Fibonacci number and I is the 2 X 2 identity matrix... - Michele Dondi (blazar(AT)lcm.mi.infn.it), Apr 06 2004

%C Number of 3412-avoiding involutions containing exactly one subsequence of type 321.

%C Number of binary sequences of length n with exactly one pair of consecutive 1's. - George J. Schaeffer (gschaeff(AT)andrew.cmu.edu), Sep 02 2004

%C For this sequence the n-th term is given by (nF(n+1)-F(n)+nF(n-1))/5 where F(n) is the n-th Fibonacci number. - Mrs. J. P. Shiwalkar and M. N. Deshpande (dpratap_ngp(AT)sancharnet.in), Apr 20 2005

%C If an unbiased coin is tossed n times then there are 2^n possible strings of H and T. Out of these, number of strings with exactly one 'HH' is given by a(n) where a(n) denotes n-th term of this sequence. - Mrs. J. P. Shiwalkar and M. N. Deshpande (dpratap_ngp(AT)sancharnet.in), May 04 2005

%C a(n) is half the number of horizontal dominoes in all domino tilings of a horizontally aligned 2 X n rectangle; a(n+1) = the number of vertical dominoes in all domino tilings of a horizontally aligned 2 X n rectangle; thus 2*a(n)+a(n+1)=n*F(n+1) = the number of dominoes in all domino tilings of a 2 X n rectangle, where F=A000045, the Fibonacci sequence. - _Roberto Tauraso_, May 02 2005; _Graeme McRae_, Jun 02 2006

%C a(n+1) = ((-i)^(n-1))*(d/dx)S(n,x)|_{x=i}, where i is the imaginary unit, n >= 1. First derivative of Chebyshev S-polynomials evaluated at x=i multiplied by (-i)^(n-1). See A049310 for the S-polynomials. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Apr 04 2007

%C For n >= 4, a(n) is the number of weak compositions of n-2 in which exactly one part is 0 and all other parts are either 1 or 2. - _Milan Janjic_, Jun 28 2010

%C For n greater than 1, a(n) equals the absolute value of (1 - (1/2 - i/2)*(1 + (-1)^(n + 1))) times the x-coefficient of the characteristic polynomial of the (n-1) X (n-1) tridiagonal matrix with i's along the main diagonal (i is the imaginary unit), 1's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal and 0's everywhere else (see Mathematica code below). - _John M. Campbell_, Jun 23 2011

%C a(n) = A214178(n,1) for n > 0. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jul 08 2012

%C For n > 0: a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n-1} (A039913(n-1,k)) / 2. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Oct 07 2012

%C The right-hand side of a binomial-coefficient identity [Gauthier]. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Apr 09 2013

%C a(n) is the number of edges in the Fibonacci cube Gamma(n-1) (see the Klavzar 2005 reference, p. 149). Example: a(3)=2; indeed, the Fibonacci cube Gamma(2) is the path P(3) having 2 edges. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Aug 10 2014

%C a(n) is the number of c(i)'s, including repetitions, in p(n), where p(n)/q(n) is the n-th convergent p(n)/q(n) of the formal infinite continued fraction [c(0),c(1),...]; e.g., the number of c(i)'s in p(3) = c(0)c(1)c(2)c(3) + c(0)c(1) + c(0)c(3) + c(2)c(3) + 1 is a(5) = 10. - _Clark Kimberling_, Dec 23 2015

%C Also the number of maximal and maximum cliques in the (n-1)-Fibonacci cube graph. - _Eric W. Weisstein_, Sep 07 2017

%C a(n+1) is the total number of fixed points in all permutations p on 1,2,...,n such that |k-p(k)| <= 1 for 1 <= k <= n. - _Katharine Ahrens_, Sep 03 2019

%C From _Steven Finch_, Mar 22 2020: (Start)

%C a(n+1) is the total binary weight (cf. A000120) of all A000045(n+2) binary sequences of length n not containing any adjacent 1's.

%C The only three 2-bitstrings without adjacent 1's are 00, 01 and 10. The bitsums of these are 0, 1 and 1. Adding these give a(3)=2.

%C The only five 3-bitstrings without adjacent 1's are 000, 001, 010, 100 and 101. The bitsums of these are 0, 1, 1, 1 and 2. Adding these give a(4)=5.

%C The only eight 4-bitstrings without adjacent 1's are 0000, 0001, 0010, 0100, 1000, 0101, 1010 and 1001. The bitsums of these are 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, and 2. Adding these give a(5)=10. (End)
