COMMENTS

A140780 has the same recursion rule but starts (1, 3, 29,...).

a(n)/a(n-1) tends to 2*sqrt(6) + 5 = 9.8989794855...

FORMULA

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) - a(n-2); n>1; given a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2. a(n) = term (1,1) in X^n, where X = the 2x2 matrix [2,3; 5,8].

a(n) = (-1/8)*[5+2*sqrt(6)]^n*sqrt(6)+(1/8)*sqrt(6)*[5-2*sqrt(6)]^n+(1/2)*[5+2*sqrt(6)]^n+(1/2) *[5-2*sqrt(6)]^n, with n>=0 - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 06 2008

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 18422 = 10*a(4) - a(3) = 10*1861 - 188.

a(3) = 188 = term (1,1) of X^3.
