COMMENTS

The terms of this sequence are Fibonacci double factorial numbers.

a(n) is asymptotic to C2*phi^(n*(n+1))/sqrt(5)^n where phi=(1+sqrt(5))/2 is the golden ratio. For the decimal expansion of C2 see A194159.

Product of first n terms of the binomial transform of the Fibonacci numbers. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 29 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = Product_{i=1..n} F(2*i) with F(n) = A000045(n).

a(n) = A123029(2*n).

a(n+1)/a(n) = A001906(n+1).

0 = a(n)*(3*a(n+2)^2 - a(n+1)*a(n+3)) -a(n+1)^2*a(n+2) for all n>=0. - Michael Somos, Oct 06 2014
