The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



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”).

For n>=7, round(c^prime(n)) == 1 (mod 2*prime(n)). Proof in Shevelev link. In particular, all terms are even.

All roots of the equation x^7-x^6-x^5-x^4-x^3-x^2-x-1 = 0

are the following: c=1.9919641966050350211,

-0.78418701799584451319 +/- 0.36004972226381653409*i,

-0.24065633852269642508 + /- 0.84919699909267892575*i,

0.52886125821602342773 +/- 0.76534196109589443115*i.

Absolute values of all roots, except for septanacci constant c, are less than 1.

Conjecture. Absolute values of all roots of the equation x^n - x^(n-1) - ... -x - 1 = 0, except for n-bonacci constant c_n, are less than 1. If the conjecture is valid, then for sufficiently large k=k(n), for all m>=k, we have round(c_n^prime(m)) == 1 (mod 2*prime(m)) (cf. Shevelev link).
