LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 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) for n > 3. G.f.: (1 + 9*x - 13*x^2 + 2*x^3)/(1 - 2*x - 2*x^2 + x^3). a(n) = (2^(-n)*(-23*(-2)^n-(3-sqrt(5))^n*(-9+sqrt(5))+(3+sqrt(5))^n*(9+sqrt(5))))/5 for n>0. - Colin Barker, Sep 29 2016 EXAMPLE Let p(n,x) be the minimal polynomial of the number given by the n-th continued fraction: [sqrt(5),1,1,1,1,...] = (-1+3*sqrt(5))/2 has p(0,x)=-11+x+x^2, so a(0) = 1; [1,sqrt(5),1,1,1,...] = (23+3*sqrt(5))/22 has p(1,x)=11-23x+11x^2, so a(1) = 11; [1,1,sqrt(5),1,1,...] = (45-3*sqrt(5))/22 has p(2,x)=45-45x+11x^2, so a(2) = 11.
