Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

EXAMPLE

For the first entry of R=1, we have the polynomial x^3 - 3x + 1. Its roots, expressed as continued fractions, all have a common tail of 3, 2, 3, 1, 1, 6, 11, ... The next examples are R=7 with the polynomial x^3 - 7x + 7, then R=9 with the polynomial x^3 - 9x + 9, and Q=35 with the polynomial x^3 - 21x + 35. Note that for the R=7 example, we get the common tail of 2, 3, 1, 6, 10, 5, ... which is contained in A039921.
