Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (10, 135, 135, 10, -1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 13*a(n-1) + 104*a(n-2) - 260*a(n-3) - 260*a(n-4) + 104*a(n-5) + 13*a(n-6) - a(n-7) for n > 8.

G.f.:  (-9 + 125 x - 104 x^2 - 8179 x^3 - 9491 x^4 - 700 x^5 + 70 x^6)/(1 - 10 x - 135 x^2 - 135 x^3 - 10 x^4 + x^5).

From Andrew Howroyd, Mar 07 2018: (Start)

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) + 135*a(n-2) + 135*a(n-3) + 10*a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n > 6.

G.f.: (-9 + 125*x - 104*x^2 - 8179*x^3 - 9491*x^4 - 700*x^5 + 70*x^6)/((1 + x)*(1 + 7*x + x^2)*(1 - 18*x + x^2)).

EXAMPLE

Let u = 2^(1/3), and let p(n,x) be the minimal polynomial of the number given by the n-th continued fraction:

[u,1,1,1,...] has p(0,x)  = -5 - 15 x - 6 x^2 - 9 x^3 + 3 x^5 + x^6, so that a(0) = -9.

[1,u,1,1,1,...] has p(1,x) = -11 + 45 x - 66 x^2 + 35 x^3 + 6 x^4 - 15 x^5 + 5 x^6, so that a(1) = 35;

[1,1,u,1,1,1...] has p(2,x) = 131 - 633 x + 1110 x^2 - 969 x^3 + 456 x^4 - 111 x^5 + 11 x^6, so that a(2) = -969.

MATHEMATICA

u[n_] := Table[1, {k, 1, n}]; t[n_] := Join[u[n], {2^(1/3)}, {{1}}];

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