%N Subsequence of terms of odd index of the Somos-5 sequence.

%C The sequence corresponds to the sequence of points Q+nP on the curve y^2=4*x^3-(121/12)*x+845/216, where Q=(-7/12,-3) and P=(17/12,-1).

%C Another sequence of points is (2*n - 1)*P on the curve "102a1": y^2 + x * y = x^3 + x^2 - 2 * x where P = [-1, -1]. - _Michael Somos_, Jul 15 2011

%F a(0)=a(1)=1, a(2)=2, a(3)=5; a(n) = (a(n-1)*a(n-3)+8*a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4).

%F Exact formula: a(n)=D*E^n*sigma(f+n*k)/sigma(k)^(n^2) where sigma is the Weierstrass sigma function associated to the elliptic curve y^2=4*x^3-(121/12)*x+845/216, D=1/sigma(f)=-0.363554228-0.803200610*I, E=sigma(k)*sigma(f)/sigma(f+k)=0.644801269+0.734118205*I, f=integral{infinity}^{-7/12} dx/y = -0.509286773+0.973928783*I, k=integral{17/12}^{infinity} dx/y = 1.018573545 all to 9 d.p.

%F a(n) = a(1 - n), a(n) = (-8 * a(n-1) * a(n-4) + 57 * a(n-2) * a(n-3)) / a(n-5) for all n in Z. - _Michael Somos_, Jul 15 2011
