Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..82

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(n-1)*a(n-1) + a(n-2). - Orson R. L. Peters, Dec 28 2016

0 = a(n)*(-2*a(n+2)) + a(n+1)*(+a(n+1) - a(n+3)) + a(n+2)*(+2*a(n+2)) if n>0. - Michael Somos, Dec 28 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 3*x^2 + 13*x^3 + 107*x^4 + 1725*x^5 + 55307*x^6 + 3541373*x^7 + ...

a(3) = 13, the numerator of 1 + 1/(2 + 1/4) = 13/9.

MAPLE

with(numtheory); f := n->numer(cfrac([seq (2^i, i=0..n)])); for n from 0 to 25 do printf("%d, ", f(n)) od;

MATHEMATICA
