COMMENTS

Previous name was: Golden Book's Level Leap Sequence.

x-positions a(n) of transition from phase 1 (I I) to 2 (/\) for the Golden Book’s y-position n.

LINKS

Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

Armands Strazds, The Golden Book, 1990.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,0,0,1,-2).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2 * a(n - 1) + r((n - 1) % 4); r = array(1, -1, 0, -1).

From Colin Barker, Apr 09 2015: (Start)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-4)-2*a(n-5) for n>5.

a(n) = (5+5*(-1)^n-(1+2*i)*(-i)^n-(1-i*2)*i^n+2^(1+n))/20 for n>0 where i=sqrt(-1).

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

(End)
