A078098 Let u(1)=u(2)=1, u(3)=2n+1, u(k)=abs(u(k-1)-u(k-2)-u(k-3)); then for any n (u(k),u(k+1)) = (v(n),w(n)) for k large enough; sequence gives values of Max(v(n),w(n)). 2

COMMENTS

a(n) is necessarily odd. Starting with u(1)=u(2)=1 u(3)=2n then u(k) seems unbounded and there seems to be 2 integer values x(n) y(n) such that for any m>x(n), Max( u(k) : 1<=k<=m) = sqrtint(m+y(n))

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..56.

FORMULA

Conjecture : a(n)/n is bounded

EXAMPLE

Map of 2*2+1=5 under u(k) is : 1->1->5 ->3->3->5->1->7->1->7>->1->7->1....Hence a(2)=Max(1,7)=7
