a(n+1)/a(n) converges to (13+sqrt(168)) =25.9614813... Lim a(n)/a(n+1) as n approaches infinity = 0.0385186... = 1/(13+sqrt(168)) = (13-sqrt(168)). Lim a(n+1)/a(n) as n approaches infinity = 25.9614813... = (13+sqrt(168)) = 1/(13-sqrt(168)). Lim a(n)/a(n+1) = 26 - Lim a(n+1)/a(n).

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

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (26,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) =26a(n-1) - a(n-2), starting with a(0) = 2 and a(1) = 26. a(n) = (13+sqrt(168))^n + (13-sqrt(168))^n. (a(n))^2 =a(2n)+2.

G.f.: (2-26*x)/(1-26*x+x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 02 2008

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 454274 = 26a(3) - a(2) = 26*17498 - 674 =(13+sqrt(168))^4 + (13-sqrt(168))^4 =454273.9999977986 + 0.0000022013 =454274.
