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”).

COMMENTS

Second binomial transform of A054491. Fourth binomial transform of 1 followed by A162766 and of A074324 without initial term 1.

First differences are in A161728.

Lim_{n -> infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = 4 + sqrt(3) = 5.73205080756887729....
