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”).

COMMENTS

Property: a(1) = L(2) and a(n) = L(3*n), for n >=2, where L = A000204 are the Lucas numbers.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = A014448(n), n>1.

From Colin Barker, Jul 29 2014: (Start)

a(n) = (2-sqrt(5))^n+(2+sqrt(5))^n for n>1.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)+a(n-2) for n>3.

G.f.: -x*(x^2+6*x+3) / (x^2+4*x-1). (End)

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 322 is the first Lucas number that is divisible by 7, the 4th Lucas number, so a(4) = 322. With the property a(n) = L(3*n), a(4) = A000204(12).
