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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Analogous sequence for Z/4Z = A095897; and for Z/3Z = A007070.

a(n)/a(n-1) tends to 10.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (10,25,-250,-125,1250).

FORMULA

Consider the 5/5Z addition table considered as matrix X = [0,1,2,3,4; 1,2,3,4,0; 2,3,4,0,1; 3,4,0,1,2; 4,0,1,2,3]. Then a(n) = term (1,2) of X^n.

G.f.: -x*(25*x^3-50*x^2+10*x+1) / ((10*x-1)*(125*x^4-25*x^2+1)). - Colin Barker, May 25 2013

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 19500 since term (1,2) of X^5 = 19500.

MAPLE

a:= n-> (Matrix(5, (i, j)-> irem(i+j-2, 5))^n)[1, 2]:

seq(a(n), n=1..25);  # Alois P. Heinz, May 25 2013
