LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..27.

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

FORMULA

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

G.f.:  (1 + 17 x - 11 x^2)/(1 - 2 x - 2 x^2 + x^3).

EXAMPLE

Let p(n,x) be the minimal polynomial of the number given by the n-th continued fraction:

[5,1,1,1,1,...] = (9+sqrt(5))/2 has p(0,x) = 19 - 9 x + x^2, so a(0) = 1;

[1,5,1,1,1,...] = (47-sqrt(5))/38 has p(1,x) = 29 - 47 x + 19 x^2, so a(1) = 19;

[1,1,5,1,1,...] = (105+sqrt(5))/58 has p(2,x) = 5 - 105 x + 29 x^2, so a(2) = 29.

MATHEMATICA

u[n_] := Table[1, {k, 1, n}]; t[n_] := Join[u[n], {5}, {{1}}];

f[n_] := FromContinuedFraction[t[n]];

t = Table[MinimalPolynomial[f[n], x], {n, 0, 20}]

Coefficient[t, x, 1] (* A265805 *)
