COMMENTS

a(n+1)/a(n) converges to (29+sqrt(845))/2 = 29.0344418537... a(0)/a(1)=2/29; a(1)/a(2)=29/843; a(2)/a(3)=843/24476; a(3)/a(4)=24476/710647; ... etc. Lim a(n)/a(n+1) as n approaches infinity = 0.0344418537... = 2/(29+sqrt(845)) = (sqrt(845)-29)/2.

Tanya Khovanova, Recursive Sequences

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

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (29, 1).

FORMULA

a(n) =29*a(n-1) + a(n-2), starting with a(0) = 2 and a(1) = 29.

a(n) = ((29+sqrt(845))/2)^n + ((29-sqrt(845))/2)^n.

(a(n))^2 =a(2n)-2 for n=1, 3, 5..., (a(n))^2 =a(2n)+2 for n=2, 4, 6....

G.f.: (2-29*x)/(1-29*x-x^2). [From Philippe Deléham, Nov 02 2008]

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 710647 = 29*a(3) + a(2) = 29*24476+ 843=((29+sqrt(845))/2)^4 + ( (29-sqrt(845))/2)^4 =710646.9999985928 + 0.0000014071 = 710647.
