COMMENTS

a(n) is a special family of 2nd-order base-10 grafting integers, because every integer generated by ceiling((3-sqrt(5))*10^(2*n+1)) is a grafting integer.

A grafting number is a number whose digits, represented in base b, appear before or directly after the decimal point of its r-th root. Numbers of the simplest type deal with square roots in the decimal system.

The constant x = 3-sqrt(5) is a solution of the general grafting equation (x*b^a)^(1/r) = x + c with corresponding values r = 2, b = 10, a = 1, c = 2 (where r >= 2 is the grafting root, b >= 2 is the base in which the numbers are represented, a >= 0 is the number of places the decimal point is shifted, and c >= 0 is the constant added to the front of the result).
