A215817 a(n) is the rational part of A(n) = (6-sqrt(7))*A(n-1) - (12-4*sqrt(7))*A(n-2) + (8-3*sqrt(7))*A(n-3) with A(0)=3, A(1)=6-sqrt(7), A(2)=19-4*sqrt(7). 7

COMMENTS

The Berndt-type sequence number 14 for the argument 2Pi/7 defined by requiring a(n) to be the rational part of the trigonometric sum A(n) := c(1)^(2*n) + c(2)^(2*n) + c(4)^(2*n), where c(j) := 2*cos(Pi/4 + 2*Pi*j/7) = 2*cos((7+8*j)*Pi/28). We note that (A(n)-a(n))/sqrt(7) = A215877(n) are all integers. We have A(n)=2^n*O(n;i/2), where O(n;d) denote the big omega function with index n for the argument d in C defined in comments to A215794 (see also Witula-Slota's paper - Section 6). From the respective recurrence relation for this function we generate the title recurrence for A(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = rational part of c(1)^(2n) + c(2)^(2n) + c(4)^(2n) = (1-s(1))^n + (1-s(2))^n + (1-s(4))^n, where c(j) := 2*cos((7+8*j)/28) and s(j) := sin(2*Pi*j/7).
