A Study of Generalized Fourth-Order Pell Sequences

Main Article Content

Y üksel Soykan


In this paper, we investigate the generalized fourth order Pell sequences and we deal with, in detail, three special cases which we call them as fourth order Pell, fourth order Pell-Lucas and modified fourth order Pell sequences.

Pell numbers, fourth order Pell numbers, fourth order Pell-Lucas numbers.
