Pell Identities via a Quadratic Field
Griffiths, Martin
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v44 n8 p1268-1273 2013
In this article, we derive a number of identities involving both Pell numbers and binomial coefficients. We also consider briefly the potential for obtaining Pell identities involving trinomial coefficients and beyond. A key point is the simplicity of the derivations, and indeed this work can lead on to a number of interesting explorations for first-year undergraduates.
