FORMULA
a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) + a(n-3).
G.f.: x*(1 - 25*x - x^2 + 2*x^3) / ((1 + x)*(1 - 3*x + x^2)).
a(n) = (1/5)*2^(-n)*(-23*(-2)^n + (4-8*sqrt(5)) * (3+sqrt(5))^n + (3-sqrt(5))^n*(4+8*sqrt(5))) for n>1. - Colin Barker, May 21 2020
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - a(n-2) - 23*(-1)^n for n >= 4. - Greg Dresden, May 18 2020
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.
