Abstract: In a recent investigation of dihedral quartic fields [6] a rational sequence was encountered. We show that these are positive integers and that they satisfy surprising congruences modulo a prime p. They generate unknown padic numbers and may therefore be compared with the cubic recurrences in [1], where the corresponding padic numbers are known completely [2]. Other unsolved problems are presented. The growth of the is examined and a new algorithm for computing is given. An appendix by D. Zagier, which carries the investigation further, is added.
