On some Pell difference sequences

Paula Maria Machado Cruz Catarino


In this paper the concept of difference relation is applied to the sequences of k-Pell, k-Pell-Lucas and Modified k-Pell numbers. We will obtain some algebraic properties of these sequences and correspondent Binet's formulae as well as generating functions are established.
