A022031 Define the sequence T(a(0),a(1)) by a(n+2) is the greatest integer such that a(n+2)/a(n+1) < a(n+1)/a(n) for n >= 0. This is T(4,17). 3

COMMENTS

The empirical g.f. / recurrence agrees with the original definition for at least 2000 terms (and a(2000) ~ 10^1250). - M. F. Hasler, Feb 11 2016

FORMULA

Empirical g.f.: -(x^6+x^5+x^4+x^3-x-4) / ((x-1)*(x^6+2*x^5+3*x^4+4*x^3+4*x^2+3*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 18 2015

a(n+1) = ceiling(a(n)^2/a(n-1))-1 for all n > 0. a(n+1)/a(n) ~ 4.219599938... as n -> oo. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 11 2016

PROG

(PARI) a=[4, 17]; for(n=2, 2000, a=concat(a, ceil(a[n]^2/a[n-1])-1)); A022031(n)=a[n+1] \\ M. F. Hasler, Feb 11 2016
