%N Constant term in the reduction by (x^2->x+1) of the polynomial p(n,x) defined below at Comments.

%C The titular polynomial is defined by p(n,x)=(x^2)*p(n-1,x)+x*p(n-2,x), with p(0,x)=1, p(1,x)=x. The resulting sequence typifies a general class which we shall describe here. Suppose that u,v,a,b,c,d,e,f are numbers used to define these polynomials:

%C ...

%C q(x)=x^2

%C s(x)=u*x+v

%C p(0,x)=a, p(1,x)=b*x+c

%C p(n,x)=d*(x^2)*p(n-1,x)+e*x*p(n-2,x)+f.

%C ...

%C We shall assume that u is not 0 and that {d,e} is not {0}. The reduction of p(n,x) by the repeated substitution q(x)->s(x), as defined and described at A192232 and A192744, has the form h(n)+k(n)*x. The numerical sequences h and k are linear recurrence sequences, formally of order 5. The Mathematica program below, with first line deleted, shows initial terms and recurrence coefficients, which imply these properties:

%C (1) the recurrence coefficients depend only on u,v,d,e; the parameters a,b,c,f affect only the initial terms.

%C (2) if e=0 or v=0, the order of recurrence is <=3;

%C (3) if e=0 and v=0, the recurrence coefficients are 1+d*u^2 and -d*u^2 (cf. similar results at A192872).

%C ...

%C A001906: even-indexed F(n)

%C A001519: odd-indexed F(n)
