Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A235089 a(n)*Pi is the total length of irregular spiral (center points: 2, 1, 3, 4) after n rotations. 6

COMMENTS

Let points 2, 1, 3 & 4 be placed on a straight line at intervals of 1 unit. At point 1 make a half unit circle then at point 2 make another half circle and maintain continuity of circumferences. Continue using this procedure at point 3, 4, 1, ... and so on. The form is non-expanded loop.

The alternative point order [2, 3, 1, 4] gives the same pattern with reflection, but the sequence will be 2*A047215(n). See illustration in links.

Conjecture: Numbers equivalent 0 or 3 modulo 10. - Ralf Stephan, Jan 13 2014

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = -1+(-1)^n+5*n. a(n) = a(n-1)+a(n-2)-a(n-3). G.f.: x*(7*x+3) / ((x-1)^2*(x+1)). - Colin Barker, Jan 16 2014

(Small Basic)

a[1]=3

For n = 1 To 100

If Math.Remainder(n+1, 2)=0 then

d1=7

EndIf

a[n+1]=a[n]+d1
