 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = (2+sqrt(3))^4 = 97+56*sqrt(3). LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (195, -195, 1). FORMULA G.f.: x*(1-78*x+5*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-194*x+x^2)). a(n) = 194*a(n-1)-a(n-2)-72. a(n) = 195*a(n-1)-195*a(n-2)+a(n-3). a(n) = 1/48*((sqrt(3)+6)*(2+sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)-(sqrt(3)-6)*(2-sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)+18). a(n) = ceiling(1/48*(sqrt(3)+6)*(2+sqrt(3))^(4*n-3)). EXAMPLE The second decagonal number that is also octagonal is A001107(117) = 54405. Hence a(2) = 117. MATHEMATICA LinearRecurrence[{195, -195, 1}, {1, 117, 22625}, 14] CROSSREFS Cf.
