COMMENTS

Instead of the Fibonacci sequence this has the base Padovan sequence.

The a(n+1)/a(n) ratio approaches one.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..69.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,0,0,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-2)+a(n-3)-floor(a(n-3)/2)-floor(a(n-4)/2).

Empirical g.f.: (x^3+1) / (x^6-x^5-x+1) = (x+1)*(x^2-x+1) / ((x-1)^2*(x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1)). - Colin Barker, Mar 23 2013

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Mar 15 2015: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-5) - a(n-6).

a(n) = floor( (2n+5)/5 ). (End)

MAPLE

A173276:=n->floor((2*n+5)/5): seq(A173276(n), n=0..50); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Mar 15 2015

MATHEMATICA

f[-2] = 0; f[-1] = 0; f[0] = 1; f[1] = 1;

f[n_] := f[n] = f[n - 2] + f[n - 3] - Floor[f[n - 3]/2] - Floor[f[n - 4]/2]

Table[f[n], {n, 0, 50}]
