Hey, can you help me with this problem? Let m be positive integer and let's define a recurrence sequence: a(0)=a(1)=1, a(n+2)=a(n+1)+a(n)*e^(2πi*(n+1)/m). Prove that: a(2m)=a(m)+1

Did you intend "m" to appear in the equation a(n+2) = a(n+1) + a(n)*e^(2πi*(n+1)/m)?

Yes, the sequence is dependent on the fixed m>=1
