EXAMPLE

The 5th prime number is 11. The Lucas sequence mod 11 is {2,1,3,4,7,0,7,7,3,10,2,1,3,...} - a periodic sequence. There are 7 distinct residues in this sequence, namely {0,1,2,3,4,7,10}. So a(5) = 7.

MATHEMATICA

pisano[n_] := Module[{a = {2, 1}, a0, k = 0, s}, If[n == 1, 1, a0 = a; Reap[While[k++; s = Mod[Plus @@ a, n]; Sow[s]; a[[1]] = a[[2]]; a[[2]] = s; a != a0]][[2, 1]]]]; Join[{2}, Table[u = Union[pisano[n]]; Length[u], {n, Prime[Range[2, 100]]}]] (* T. D. Noe, Mar 22 2013 *)
