FORMULA

G.f.: (x+x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-7*x+x^2)).

a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 8*a(n-2) + a(n-3) with n>2, a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=9.

a(n) = 7*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 2 = A001906(n)^2.

a(n) = (A000032(4*n)-2)/5. [This is in Koshy's book (reference under A065563) on p. 88, attributed to Lucas 1876.] - Wolfdieter Lang, Aug 27 2012]

a(n) = 1/5*(-2 + ( (7+sqrt(45))/2 )^n + ( (7-sqrt(45))/2 )^n). - Ralf Stephan, Apr 14 2004

a(n) = 2*(T(n, 7/2)-1)/5 with twice the Chebyshev's polynomials of the first kind evaluated at x=7/2: 2*T(n, 7/2)= A056854(n). - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 18 2004

a(n) = F(2*n-1)*F(2*n+1)-1. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 12 2015

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} F(4*i-2) for n>0. [Bruno Berselli, Aug 25 2015]

From Peter Bala, Nov 20 2019: (Start)

Sum_{n >= 1} 1/(a(n) + 1) = (sqrt(5) - 1)/2.

Sum_{n >= 1} 1/(a(n) + 4) = (3*sqrt(5) - 2)/16. More generally, it appears that

Sum_{n >= 1} 1/(a(n) + F(2*k+1)^2) = ((2*k+1)*F(2*k+1)*sqrt(5) - Lucas(2*k+1))/ (2*F(2*k+1)*F(4*k+2)) for k = 0,1,2,....

Sum_{n >= 2} 1/(a(n) - 1) = (8 - 3*sqrt(5))/9. (End)

E.g.f.: (1/5)*(-2*exp(x) + exp((16*x)/(1 + sqrt(5))^4) + exp((1/2)*(7 + 3*sqrt(5))*x)). - Stefano Spezia, Nov 23 2019

Product_{n>=2} (1 - 1/a(n)) = phi^2/3, where phi is the golden ratio (A001622) (Davlianidze, 2020). - Amiram Eldar, Dec 01 2021
