COMMENTS

This sequence is the ratio-determined insertion sequence (RDIS) "twin" to A078362 (see the link for an explanation of "twin"). See A082630 or A082981 for recent examples of RDIS sequences.

a(n) = L(n,13), where L is defined as in A108299. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 01 2005

For n >= 2, a(n) equals the permanent of the (2n-2) X (2n-2) tridiagonal matrix with sqrt(11)'s along the main diagonal, and 1's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal. - John M. Campbell, Jul 08 2011

Seems to be positive values of x (or y) satisfying x^2 - 13xy + y^2 + 11 = 0. - Colin Barker, Feb 10 2014

It appears that the b-file, formulas and programs are based on the conjectured, so far apparently unproved recurrence relation. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 05 2018

FORMULA

It appears that the sequence satisfies a(n+1) = 13*a(n) - a(n-1). [Corrected by M. F. Hasler, Nov 05 2018]

If the recurrence a(n+2) = 13*a(n+1) - a(n) holds then for n > 0, a(n)*a(n+3) = 143 + a(n+1)*a(n+2). - Ralf Stephan, May 29 2004

G.f.: x*(1-x)/(1 - 13*x + x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 17 2008
