COMMENTS

a(n+1)/a(n) converges to 3 + sqrt 10.

a(0)/a(1) = 1/3 = [3]; a(1)/a(2) = 6/38 = [6,3]; a(2)/a(3) = 38/234 = [6,6,3], a(3)/a(4) = 234/1442 = [6,6,6,3]; a(4)/a(5) = 1442/8886 = [6,6,6,6,3];...etc. Lim a(n)/a(n+1) as n approaches infinity = 0.1622776...= 1/(3 + sqrt10) = sqrt(10) - 3.

Index entries for recurrences a(n) = k*a(n - 1) +/- a(n - 2)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (3 + sqrt 10)^n + (3 - sqrt 10)^n = A005668(n+1) + A005668(n-1).

O.g.f.: 2*(-1+3*x)/(-1+6*x+x^2). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 02 2007

a(n) = 2*A005667(n). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 10 2013

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 6*a(3)+a(2) = 6*234+38 = 1442.
