(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A165987 a(n) is the trace of the matrix f(X + n*f(X))/f(X), where X is the 2 X 2 matrix [-13, 17; 31, 97] and f(x) = x^3 - 5*x + 67. 0

COMMENTS
Old name was: As mentioned in the short description (cf. A165806 & A165808) polynomials have the property: f(x + k*f(x)) is congruent to 0 mod(f(x)). This is true even if the variable is a square matrix. For this sequence let X be a 2x2 matrix (X belongs to Z): col1:-13, 31;col2: 17, 97. Let the polynomial be X^3 -5X + 67. The present sequence is a sequence of traces of the matrices resulting from the division of f(X + k*f(X))/f(X). Here k belongs to N.
