 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The (1,2)-entry of the n-th power of the 2 X 2 matrix [0,1;1,1] is the Fibonacci number A000045(n). LINKS Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..351 FORMULA For n > 1, a(n) = ((n - 1 + sqrt(n*(n - 1)))^n - (n - 1 - sqrt(n*(n - 1)))^n)/(2*sqrt(n*(n - 1))). - Robert Israel, Oct 19 2021 EXAMPLE a(4)=252 because if M is the 2 X 2 matrix [0,1;3,6], then M^4 is the 2 X 2 matrix [117,252;756;1629]. MAPLE with(linalg): a:=proc(n) local A, k: A[1]:=matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, n-1, 2*(n-1)]): for k from 2 to n do A[k]:=multiply(A[k-1], A[1]) od: A[n][1, 2] end: seq(a(n), n=1..19); # second Maple program: a:= n-> (<<0|1>, >^n)[1, 2]: seq(a(n), n=1..18); # Alois P.
