COMMENTS

These numbers x also have the property that the Fibonacci sequence starting (1, x, ...) contains the concatenation of 1 and x, but there are other solutions, e.g., x = 14285.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..26.

R. Israel, in reply to E. Angelini, Fibonacci concatenated, SeqFan list, Jan. 26, 2016

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

FORMULA

G.f.: (-4/(1 - x) + (2*Sqrt(10))/(1 - Sqrt(10)*x) - 10/(-1 + Sqrt(10)*x) + 10/(1 + Sqrt(10)*x) - (2*Sqrt(10))/(1 + Sqrt(10)*x))/4. - Michael De Vlieger, Jan 26 2016

G.f.: ( 4+5*x ) / ( (x-1)*(10*x^2-1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Mar 12 2017
