 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The row length sequence for this array is [2,4,6,8,...] = 2*A000027. A conjecture by Melham (see the reference, eq. 2.7) is:   sum(L(2*i+1),i=0..m)*sum(F(2*k)^(2*m+1),k=0..n) = (F(2*n+1)-1)^2*P(2*m-1,F(2*n+1)), where F=A000045 (Fibonacci), L=A000032 (Lucas) and P is an integer polynomial of degree 2*m-1 in x=F(2*n+1), for m >= 1 and n >= 0. The table a(m,l) lists the coefficients of these polynomials for m=1..6. Thus the conjecture is certainly true for m=1..6.   P(2*m-1,x) = sum(a(m,l)*x^l,l=0..2*m-1), m>=1, where x= F(2*n+1), n>=0. The absolute terms a(m,0), the first column entries, are given by A217744(m), m>=1. See also the Wang and Zhang reference, Theorem 2. (D) and the Corollaries 2 and 3. Corollary 3 proves   sum(L(2*i+1),i=0..m)*sum(F(2*k)^(2*m+1),k=0..n) = (F(2*n+1)-1)*H(2*m,F(2*n+1)), with an integer polynomial of degree 2*n. (Thanks go to B. Cloitre for pointing out this paper). - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 18 2012 LINKS R. S.

Zhang, Some identities involving Fibonacci, Lucas polynomials and their applications, Bull. Math. Soc. Sci. Math. Roumanie, Tome 55(103), No.1, (2012) 95-103. FORMULA a(m,l) = [x^l]P(2*m-1,x), m>-1, l=0..2*m-1, with the polynomial P appearing in the Melham conjecture stated in the comment section. EXAMPLE The array a(m,l) starts: m\l     0      1        2      3      4     5     6      7 ... 1:      2      1 2:    -14     -3        8      4 3:    278      3     -272    -92     88    44 4: -15016   2188    19392   3932 -11528 -4488  2552   1276 ...

Row 7: 851104689248 -394334131664 -1639772952576 174968334112 1989709620800 248542106736 -1492625407328 -403454346592 685716714144 253835649760 -178045414624 -78968332608 20108749408 10054374704.  Thus conjecture is true for m=7 as well. m=1: 1*4*sum(F(2*k)^3,k=0..n) = 4*A163198(n) = (x-1)^2*(2 + x)  = 2-3*x+x^3 with x=F(2*n+1).  See also A217472, the example for m=1. m=2: 1*4*11*sum(F(2*k)^5,k=0..n) = 44*A217471(n) = (x-1)^2* (-14 - 3*x + 8*x^2 + 4*x^3) = -14 + 25*x - 15*x^3 + 4*x^5 with x=F(2*n+1).
