 A078109 Let u(1)=u(2)=1, u(3)=2n, u(k) = abs(u(k-1)-u(k-2)-u(k-3)) and M(k)= Max( u(i) : 1<=i<=k), then for any k>=a(n), M(k)=sqrtint(k + A078108(n)) where sqrtint(x) denotes floor(sqrt(x)). 1

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Conjecture : a(n) always exists, a(n)/n^2 is bounded. If initial conditions are u(1)=u(2)=1, u(3)=2n+1, then u(k) reaches a 2-cycle for any k>m large enough (cf. A078098) LINKS CROSSREFS Cf. A000196, A078108, A077623.
