 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The next term has 235 digits. In general, the recurrence a(n) = a(n-1)^k / a(n-2) with a(0) = 1, a(1) = m, k > 2, has a solution a(n) = m^(((k+sqrt(k^2-4))^n - (k-sqrt(k^2-4))^n) / (sqrt(k^2-4) * 2^n)). LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..5. FORMULA a(n) = 2^(A001353(n)). a(n) = 2^(((2+sqrt(3))^n-(2-sqrt(3))^n)/(2*sqrt(3))).
