## Common factors of shifted Fibonacci numbers

Periodica Mathematica Hungarica
Authors:
Santos Hernández
and
Florian Luca

## Abstract

For any positive integer n let Fn be the n-th Fibonacci number. Given positive integers a and b, we study the size of the greatest common divisor of Fn + a and Fm + b for varying positive integers m and n.

## On the sum of two divisors of (n 2 + 1)/2

Periodica Mathematica Hungarica
Authors:
Andrej Dujella
and
Florian Luca

## Abstract

In this paper, given a pair of odd coprime integers δ and ɛ, we study the positive n such that (n 2 + 1)/2 has two divisors d 1 and d 2 summing up to δn + ɛ.

## Arithmetic functions monotonic at consecutive arguments

Authors:

Florian Luca

For a large class of arithmetic functions f, it is possible to show that, given an arbitrary integer κ ≤ 2, the string of inequalities f(n + 1) < f(n + 2) < … < f(n + κ) holds for in-finitely many positive integers n. For other arithmetic functions f, such a property fails to hold even for κ = 3. We examine arithmetic functions from both classes. In particular, we show that there are only finitely many values of n satisfying σ2(n − 1) < σ2 < σ2(n + 1), where σ2(n) = ∑ d|n d 2. On the other hand, we prove that for the function f(n) := ∑ p|n p 2, we do have f(n − 1) < f(n) < f(n + 1) in finitely often.

## Perfect Pell and Pell–Lucas numbers

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors:
Jhon J. Bravo
and
Florian Luca

## Abstract

The Pell sequence $( P n ) n = 0 ∞$ is given by the recurrence Pn = 2Pn −1 + Pn −2 with initial condition P 0 = 0, P 1 = 1 and its associated Pell-Lucas sequence $( Q n ) n = 0 ∞$ is given by the same recurrence relation but with initial condition Q 0 = 2, Q 1 = 2. Here we show that 6 is the only perfect number appearing in these sequences. This paper continues a previous work that searched for perfect numbers in the Fibonacci and Lucas sequences.

## Linear independence results for the reciprocal sums of Fibonacci numbers associated with Dirichlet characters

Let {F n } n ≥0 be the sequence of Fibonacci numbers. The aim of this paper is to give linear independence results over $ℚ ( 5 )$ for the infinite series $∑ n = 1 ∞ χ j ( n ) / F n$ with certain nonprincipal real Dirichlet characters χ j . We also deduce the irrationality results for the special principal Dirichlet characters and for other multiplicative functions.
