COMMENTS

In general, the ordinary generating function for the recurrence relation b(n) = floor(phi^k*b(n - 1)) with n>0 and b(0) = 1, is (1 - x)/(1 - (phi^k + (-phi)^(-k))*x + x^2) if k is even, and (1 - x - x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 - (phi^k + (-phi)^(-k))*x - x^2)) if k is odd.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 - x - x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 - 29*x - x^2)).

a(n) = 30*a(n-1) - 28*a(n-2) - a(n-3).

a(n) = ((-29 - 13*sqrt(5))^(-n)*(-7*(407 + 182*sqrt(5))*2^(n+3) + 13*(1885 + 843*sqrt(5))*(-29 - 13*sqrt(5))^n + 28*(25319 + 11323*sqrt(5))*(-843 - 377*sqrt(5))^n))/(377*(1885 + 843*sqrt(5))).
