COMMENTS

k=11 case of the family of sequences whose k=1 case is the Fibonacci sequence A000045, k=2 case is the Padovan sequence A000931 (offset so as to begin 1,1,1), k=3 case is A079398 (offset so as to begin 1,1,1,1), k=4 case is A103372, k=5 case is A103373, k=6 case is A103374, k=7 case is A103375, k=8 case is A103376, k=9 case is A103377 and k=10 case is A103378.
The general case for integer k>1 is defined: a(1) = a(2) = ... = a(k+1)= 1 and for n>(k+1) a(n) = a(nk) + a(n[k+1]). For this k=11 case, the ratio of successive terms a(n)/a(n1) approaches the unique positive root of the characteristic polynomial: x^12  x  1 = 0. This is the real constant 1.062169167864255148458944... Note that x = (1 + (1 + (1 + (1 + (1 + ...)^(1/12))^(1/12)))^(1/12))))^(1/12)))))^(1/12))))). The sequence of prime values in this k=11 case is A103389; the sequence of semiprime values in this k=11 case is A103399.

FORMULA

For n>12: a(n) = a(n11) + a(n12). a(1) = a(2) = a(3) = a(4) = a(5) = a(6) = a(7) = a(8) = a(9) = a(10) = a(11) = a(12) = 1.
