Description: In these notes we address the study of the log-concave operator acting on Lucas Sequences of first kind. We will find for which initial values a generic Lucas sequence is log-concave, and using this we show when the same sequence is infinite log-concave. The main result will help to find the log-concavity of some well known recurrent sequences like Fibonacci and Mersenne. Some possible generalization for a complete classification of the log-concave operator applied to general linear recurrent sequences is proposed.
