COMMENTS

Using the simplified formula which extends the original one to terms that may be zero, one could prefix the values (1, 1, 0), cf. A121810. See also A203761 and references therein. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 01 2013

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..13.

FORMULA

a(n) tends towards a(n-1)^phi and 1.22376...^(phi^n) where phi=(1+sqrt(5))/2=1.6180339887...

a(n)=a(n-1)*a(n-2)+a(n-3)*a(n-1)+a(n-2)*a(n-3). - M. F. Hasler, Jan 01 2013

EXAMPLE

a(7)=31*7*3*(1/31+1/7+1/3)=331.

MATHEMATICA

RecurrenceTable[{a[n]==a[n-1]*a[n-2]+a[n-3]*a[n-1]+a[n-2]*a[n-3], a[1]==1, a[2]==1, a[3]==1}, a[n], {n, 1, 15}] (* Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 20 2014 *)
