COMMENTS

The linked document "Proof Certificate" gives data for verifying that period function T(u) measures precession of the J-vector along an algebraic sphere curve with local cyclic C_5 symmetry (also cf. Examples and A318496).

FORMULA

2*n^2*a(n) - (59*n^2-59*n+20)*a(n-1) + 12*(6*n-7)*(6*n-5)*a(n-2) = 0.

For n > 0, a(n) mod 10 = 0 (conjecture, tested up to n=10^6).

EXAMPLE

Period function T_{I}(w): Take T_{C5}(u) and T_{C3}(v) from A318495 and A318496 respectively. Set (u,v)=(1-w,w+5/27), with u in [0,1], v in [0,5/27], and w in [-5/27,1]. Define piecewise function T_{I}(w) = T_{C5}(1-w) if w in [0,1] or T_{I}(w) = T_{C3}(w+5/27) if w in [-5/27,0].

Geometric Singular Points: Construct a family of algebraic sphere curves by intersecting a sphere 1=X^2+Y^2+Z^2 with the icosahedral surface w=Z^6 - 5*(X^2+Y^2)*Z^4 + 5*(X^2+Y^2)^2*Z^2 - 2*(X^4-10*X^2*Y^2+5*Y^4)*X*Z. Six icosahedron vertex axes intersect the sphere in twelve circular points with w=1. Ten dodecahedron vertex axes intersect the sphere in twenty circular points with w=-5/27. Fifteen icosidodecahedron vertex axes intersect the sphere in thirty hyperbolic points with w=0.
