Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Consider the 2-step recursion f(k)=f(k-1)+f(k-2) mod n. For any of the n^2 initial conditions f(1) and f(2) in Zn, the recursion has a finite period. Each of these n^2 vectors belongs to exactly one orbit. In general, there are only a few different orbit lengths for each n. For n=8, there are 4 different lengths: 1, 3, 6 and 12. The maximum possible length of an orbit is A001175(n), the period of the Fibonacci 2-step sequence mod n. - T. D. Noe, May 02 2005
