COMMENTS

Compare with A000301(n) = 2^Fibonacci(n).

The sequence a(n) for n >= 1 gives the sequence of partial quotients (other than the first) in the continued fraction expansion of the transcendental real constant c := sum {n >= 1} 1/2^floor(n*(5 + sqrt(5))/2) = 0.13385 44229 67609 80592 ... = 1/(7 + 1/(2 + 1/(8 + 1/(16 + 1/(128 + 1/(2048 + ...)))))). See Adams Davison 1977. Cf. A014565.

The constant c has various series representations including

c = 1 - sum {n >= 1} 1/2^floor(n*(5 - sqrt(5))/2),

c = sum {n >= 1} floor(n*(5 - sqrt(5))/10)/2^n,

c = 3 - sum {n >= 1} 1/2^floor(n*(15 - sqrt(5))/22) and

c = sum {n >= 1} 1/2^floor(n*(15 + sqrt(5))/22) - 2.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^Lucas(n) = 2^A000032(n).

Recurrence: a(n) = a(n-1)*a(n-2) with a(0) = 4, a(1) = 2.

MAPLE

a := proc(n) option remember; if n = 0 then 4 elif n = 1 then 2 else a(n-1)*a(n-2); fi; end; seq(a(n), n = 0..10);
