This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation. 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. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS The following remarks assume an offset of 1. This is the sequence of Lehmer numbers U_n(sqrt(R),Q) for the parameters R = 54 and Q = -1; it is a strong divisibility sequence, that is, GCD(a(n),a(m)) = a(GCD(n,m)) for all positive integers n and m. Consequently, this is a divisibility sequence: if n divides m then a(n) divides a(m). - Peter Bala, May 27 2014 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200 Eric W. Weisstein, MathWorld: Lehmer Number Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,56,0,-1). FORMULA G.f.: -(x^2-x-1) / (x^4-56*x^2+1). - Colin Barker, Dec 16 2013 From Peter Bala, May 27 2014: (Start) The following remarks assume an offset of 1. Let alpha = ( sqrt(54) + sqrt(58) )/2 and beta = ( sqrt(54) - sqrt(58) )/2 be the roots of the equation x^2 - sqrt(54)*x - 1 = 0. Then a(n) = (alpha^n - beta^n)/(alpha - beta) for n odd, while a(n) = (alpha^n - beta^n)/(alpha^2 - beta^2) for n even. a(n) = product {k = 1..floor((n-1)/2)} ( 54 + 4*cos^2(k*Pi/n) ). Recurrence equations: a(0) = 0, a(1) = 1 and for n >= 1, a(2*n) = a(2*n - 1) + a(2*n - 2) and a(2*n + 1) = 54*a(2*n) + a(2*n - 1).
