hello

this time of behaviour is shown by arithmetic progression series in maths wihich tell you about nth term from previous and first term.
try to google on arithmetic progression series and let me know if you found something.

The problem is that the sequence is not arithmetic or geometric so I need something that will automatically be able to calculate the nth term. This is very specific and it is very difficult to find anything which does this.

Basically i need a program to run a bunch of calculations for me when is give it the first term and how to get the next term. I want to calculate the, say..100th term but that would take me sitting at a calculator calculating the terms of the sequence individually which takes to long. Is there a program which does it for me whilst giving me a list of all the points inbetween?
