Index entries for sequences related to Chebyshev polynomials.

FORMULA

a(n) = ((-1)^n)*S(2*n, 13*I) with the imaginary unit I and the S(n, x)=U(n, x/2) Chebyshev polynomials.

G.f.: (1-x)/(1-171*x+x^2).

a(n) = S(n, 171) - S(n-1, 171) = T(2*n+1, sqrt(173)/2)/(sqrt(173)/2), with S(n, x)=U(n, x/2) Chebyshev's polynomials of the second kind, A049310. S(-1, x)= 0 = U(-1, x) and T(n, x) Chebyshev's polynomials of the first kind, A053120.

a(n) = 171*a(n-1) - a(n-2), n>1 ; a(0)=1, a(1)=170 . - Philippe Deléham, Nov 18 2008

EXAMPLE
