 OFFSET -1,3 COMMENTS b(n)^2 - 42*(2*a(n))^2 = +1 with b(n):=A097308(n) gives all nonnegative integer solutions of this D:=42*4=168 Pell equation. For positive n, a(n) equals the permanent of the n X n tridiagonal matrix with 26's along the main diagonal, and i's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal (i is the imaginary unit). - John M. Campbell, Jul 08 2011 For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of 01-avoiding words of length n-1 on alphabet {0,1,...,25}.

FORMULA a(n)= S(n, 26) = U(n, 13), n>=-1, with Chebyshev polynomials of 2nd kind. See A049310 for the triangle of S(n, x) coefficients. S(-1, x) := 0 =: U(-1, x). a(n)= ((13+2*sqrt(42))^n - (13-2*sqrt(42))^n)/(4*sqrt(42)), (Binet form). a(n)= sum(((-1)^k)*binomial(n-k, k)*26^(n-2*k), k=0..floor(n/2)). G.f.: 1/(1-26*x+x^2). a(n)=26*a(n-1)-a(n-2), a(-1)=0, a(0)=1. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 18 2008 a(n) = Sum_{k, 0<=k<=n} A101950(n,k)*25^k. - Philippe Deléham, Feb 10 2012 With an offset of 0, product {n >= 1} (1 + 1/a(n)) = 1/6*(6 + sqrt(42)). - Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012 Product {n >= 2} (1 - 1/a(n)) = 1/13*(6 + sqrt(42)). - Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012 a(n) = sqrt((A097308(n)^2 - 1)/168).
