Sources mentioned in my presentation at Lexington ISBN Toastmasters on February 23:

The Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences which allows you to search for previously studied sequences by simply entering the first several numbers of the sequence: http://oeis.org. This is an indispensable resource for mathematicians and math students. You can find out a lot about Alcuin's sequence here.

The paper I used to prepare my presentation was by Donald J Bindner and Martin Erickson. It appeared in the February
2012 American Mathematical Monthly, which can be obtained at JSTOR:

http://www.jstor.org/pss/10.4169/amer.math.monthly.119.02.115

Cost is $12 unless you have a JSTOR subscription for this journal, and you can read the abstract and first page for free. It is very much worth reading for those wanting an in-depth treatment of Alcuin's Sequence.
