A231404 Integers n dividing the Lucas sequence u(n), where u(i) = 2*u(i-1) - 4*u(i-2) with initial conditions u(0)=0, u(1)=1. 0

COMMENTS

The sequence consists of all nonnegative powers of 2, together with all positive multiples of 3. There are infinitely many pairs of consecutive integers in this sequence.

EXAMPLE

For n=0,...,4 we have u(n)= 0,1,2,0,-8. Clearly n=1,2,3,4 are in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

nn = 500; s = LinearRecurrence[{2, -4}, {1, 2}, nn]; t = {}; Do[If[Mod[s[[n]], n] == 0, AppendTo[t, n]], {n, nn}]; t (* T. D. Noe, Nov 08 2013 *)

CROSSREFS

Cf. A088138 (Lucas sequence).

Equal to union of A008585 (multiples of 3) and A000079 (powers of 2).

Sequence in context: A033501 A336504 A331827 * A316860 A097273 A006446
