COMMENTS

Partial sums of A033888, i.e., a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} Fibonacci(4*k). - Vladeta Jovovic, Jun 09 2002

From Paul Weisenhorn, May 17 2009: (Start)

a(n) is the solution of the 2 equations a(n)+1=A^2 and 5*a(n)+1=B^2

which are equivalent to the Pell equation (10*a(n)+3)^2-5*(A*B)^2=4.

(End)

Numbers a(n) such as a(n)+1 and 5*a(n)+1 are perfect squares. - Sture Sjöstedt, Nov 03 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = -3/5 + (1/5*sqrt(5)+3/5)*(2*1/(7+3*sqrt(5)))^n/(7+3*sqrt(5)) + (1/5*sqrt(5)-3/5)*(-2*1/(-7+3*sqrt(5)))^n/(-7+3*sqrt(5)). Recurrence: a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 8*a(n-2) + a(n-3). G.f.: 3*x/(1-7*x+x^2)/(1-x). - Vladeta Jovovic, Jun 09 2002

a(n) = A081068(n) - 1.

a(n) is the next integer from ((3+sqrt(5))*((7+3*sqrt(5))/2)^(n-1)-6)/10. - Paul Weisenhorn, May 17 2009

a(n) = 7*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 3, n>1. - Gary Detlefs, Dec 07 2010

a(n) = sum_{k=0..n} Fibonacci(4k). - Gary Detlefs, Dec 07 2010

a(n) = (Lucas(4n+2)-3)/5, where Lucas(n)= A000032(n). - Gary Detlefs, Dec 07 2010

a(n) = (1/5)*(Fibonacci(4n+4) - Fibonacci(4n)-3). - Gary Detlefs, Dec 08 2010

a(n) = 3*A092521(n). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 03 2011

a(0)=0, a(1)=3, a(2)=24, a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 8*a(n-2) + a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 25 2013

a(n) = A001906(n)*A001906(n+1). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 09 2019
