 A164816 Prime factors in a divisibility sequence of the Lucas sequence v(P=3,Q=5) of the second kind. 0

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This is the last sequence on p. 15 of Smyth. The Lucas sequence with P = 3, Q = 5 is defined as v=2,3,-1,-18,-49,-57,.. where v(n) = P*v(n-1)-Q*v(n-2), with g.f. (2-3x)/(1-3x+5x^2). The indices n such that n|v(n) define the sequence T = 1,3,9,27,81,153,243,459,... as listed by Smyth. The OEIS sequence shows all distinct prime factors of elements of T.
