Abstract

Abd-Elhameed and Zeyada have introduced the generalized sequence of numbers (Una,b,r)n≥0 such that sequence generalizes both generalized Fibonacci numbers (Gna,b)n≥0 and generalized Pell numbers (Pna,b)n≥0. In the present paper, we show a study of the greatest common divisors of some Gna,b, Pna,b and Una,b,r.
