Math::NumSeq::Perrin -- Perrin sequence
use Math::NumSeq::Perrin; my $seq = Math::NumSeq::Perrin->new; my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
The Perrin sequence,
3, 0, 2, 3, 2, 5, 5, 7, 10, 12, 17, 22, 29, 39, 51, etc
which is the recurrence
P(i) = P(i-2) + P(i-3)
starting from 3,0,2. So for example 29 is 12+17.
12, 17, 22, 29 | | ^ | | | +---+---add-+
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$value = $seq->ith($i)
$i'th value from the sequence.
$i = $seq->value_to_i_estimate($value)
Return an estimate of the i corresponding to
