### Abstract

The generalized Lucas sequence {Un}n≥0 is defined by Un+1 = rUn + sUn−1; n ≥ 0 with U0 = 0; U1 = 1 of which the Fibonacci sequence (Fn) is the particular case r = s = 1. In 2018, F. Luca and A. Srinivasan searched for the solutions x, y, zFn of the Markov equation x2 + y2 + z2 = 3xyz and proved that (F1; F2n−1, F2n+1); n ≥ 1 is the only solution. In this paper, we extend this work from the Fibonacci sequence to any generalized Lucas sequence Un for the case s = ±1.
