COMMENTS

a(n) = number of real zeros of the polynomial P(n,x) = sum_{k=0..n} p(k) x^k where p(k) are the digits of the decimal expansion of floor(GoldenRatio *10^n) and GoldenRatio = 1.6180339 ....

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..42.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2 because 16180 => P(4,x) = 8x+x^2+6x^3+x^4 has 2 real roots :

x0= - 6.053134348… and x1 = 0.
