Let 〖(M_k)〗_(k≥0) and 〖(L_k)〗_(k≥0) be the Mulatu and Lucas sequences. That is, we solve the Diophantine equation M_k=L_m L_n=10^d L_m+L_n in non-negative integers (k,m,n,d), where d denotes the number of digits of L_n. Solutions of this equation are denoted by (k,m,n,d)=(4,1,1,1),(5,1,4,1),(8,4,2,1),(9,1,6,2). In other words, we have the solutions M_4=L_1 L_1=11, M_5=L_1 L_4=17, M_8=L_4 L_2=73, M_9=L_1 L_6=118. The proof based on Baker’s theory and we used linear forms in logarithms and reduction method to solve of this Diophantine equation.}, number={4}, publisher={Afyon Kocatepe University} }
