COMMENTS

A Berndt-type sequence for tan(2*Pi/7).

a(n) is always an integer.

a(n) is x1^n + x2^n + x3^n, where x1, x2, x3 are the roots of the polynomial

x^3 + 9*x^2 - x - 1.

x1 = tan(Pi/7)/tan(2*Pi/7),

x2 = tan(2*Pi/7)/tan(4*Pi/7),

x3 = tan(4*Pi/7)/tan(Pi/7).

This is a two sided sequence. The other half is A274075. - Kai Wang, Aug 02 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = (tan(Pi/7)/tan(2*Pi/7))^n + (-tan(2*Pi/7)/tan(3*Pi/7))^n + (-tan(3*Pi/7)/tan(Pi/7))^n.

From Colin Barker, Jun 07 2016: (Start)

a(n) = -9*a(n-1)+a(n-2)+a(n-3) for n>2.

G.f.: (3+18*x-x^2) / (1+9*x-x^2-x^3).

(End)
