COMMENTS
These pentanacci numbers follow the same pattern as Lucas, generalized tribonacci(A001644) and generalized tetranacci (A073817) numbers: Binet's formula is a(n)=r1^n+r^2^n+r3^n+r4^n+r5^n, with r1, r2, r3, r4, r5 roots of the characteristic polynomial. a(n) is also the trace of A^n, where A is the pentamatrix ((1,1,0,0,0),(1,0,1,0,0),(1,0,0,1,0),(1,0,0,0,1),(1,0,0,0,0)).
For n >= 5, a(n) is the number of cyclic sequences consisting of n zeros and ones that do not contain five consecutive ones provided the positions of the zeros and ones are fixed on a circle. This is proved in Charalambides (1991) and Zhang and Hadjicostas (2015). (For n=1,2,3,4 the statement is still true provided we allow the sequence to wrap around itself on a circle). - Petros Hadjicostas, Dec 18 2016
a(3407) has 1001 decimal digits. - Michael De Vlieger, Dec 28 2016

FORMULA
a(n) = a(n-1) +a(n-2) +a(n-3) +a(n-4) +a(n-5).
G.f.: (5-4*x-3*x^2-2*x^3-x^4) / (1-x-x^2-x^3-x^4-x^5).
a(n) = 2*a(n-1) -a(n-6), n>5. [Vincenzo Librandi, Dec 20 2010]
For k>0 and n>=0, a(n+5*k) = a(k)*a(n+4*k) - A123127(k-1)*a(n+3*k) + A123126(k-1)*a(n+2*k) - A074062(k)*a(n+k) + a(n). For example, if k=4, n=3, we have a(n+5*k) = a(23) = 5651423, a(4)*a(19) - A123127(3)*a(15) + A123126(3)*a(1695) - A074062(4)*a(7) + a(3) = (15)*(378329) - (1)*(25327) + (1)*(1695) - (-1)*(113) + (7) = 5651423. - Kai Wang, Sep 13 2020
From Kai Wang, Dec 16 2020: (Start)
For k >= 0,
| a(k+4) a(k+5) a(k+6) a(k+7) a(k+8) |
| a(k+3) a(k+4) a(k+5) a(k+6) a(k+7) |
det | a(k+2) a(k+3) a(k+4) a(k+5) a(k+6) | = 9584 = A106273(5).
| a(k+1) a(k+2) a(k+3) a(k+4) a(k+5) |
| a(k) a(k+1) a(k+2) a(k+3) a(k+4) |
