 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2017 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS A Pellian-related second-order recursive sequence. Third binomial transform of 1,8,8,64,64,512. - Al Hakanson (hawkuu(AT)gmail.com), Aug 17 2009 Binomial transform of A164607. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 26 2011 Pisano period lengths: 1, 1, 4, 2, 6, 4, 3, 2, 12, 6, 12, 4, 14, 3, 12, 2, 8, 12, 20, 6, ... - R. J. Mathar, Aug 10 2012 From Wolfdieter Lang, Feb 26 2015: (Start) This sequence gives all positive solutions x = x1 = a(n) of the first class of the (generalized) Pell equation x^2 - 2*y^2 = -7. For the corresponding y1 terms see 2*A038723(n). All positive solutions of the second class are given by (x2(n), y2(n)) = (A255236(n), A038725(n+1)), n >= 0. See (A254938(1), 2*A255232(1)) for the fundamental solution (1, 2) of the first class. See the Nagell reference, Theorem 111, p. 210, Theorem 110, p. 208, Theorem 108a, pp. 206-207. This sequence gives also all positive solutions y = y1 of the first class of the Pell equation x^2 - 2*y^2 = 14. The corresponding solutions x1 are given in 4*A038723. This follows from the preceding comment. (End) From Wolfdieter Lang, Mar 19 2015: (Start) a(0) = -(2*A038761(0) - A038762(0)), a(n) = 2*A253811((n-1) + A101386(n-1), for n >= 1. This follows from the general trivial fact that if X^2 - D*Y^2 = N (X, Y positive integers, D > 1, not a square, and N a non-vanishing integer) then x:= D*Y +/- X and y:= Y +/- X (correlated signs) satisfy x^2 - D*y^2 = -(D-1)*N. with integers x and y. Here D = 2 and N = 7. (End) REFERENCES A. H. Beiler, Recreations in the Theory of Numbers, Dover, N. Y., 1964, pps. 122-125, 194-196. T.
