A Horadam sequence is a sequence generated by the second-order
linear homogeneous recurrence relation Wn =
pWn−1 − qWn−2; W0
= a, W1 = b. The sequence of Fibonacci numbers is
a particular case of a Horadam sequence. For any fixed integers s,
t, and k, we investigate the boundedness and periodicity of
the sequence (gcd(Wn + s, Wn+k
+ t)) in this paper.
