FORMULA

A007667 = 3*square star numbers (A006061) + 2.

a(n) = denominator of kappa(sqrt(6)/A054320(n)) where kappa(x) is the sum of successive remainders by computing the Euclidean algorithm for (1, x). - Thomas Baruchel, Nov 29 2003

a(n) = 99(a(n-1) - a(n-2)) + a(n-3); a(n)=(5 - 2sqrt(6))/8*(sqrt(3) + sqrt(2))^(4n) + (5 + 2sqrt(6))/8*(sqrt(3) - sqrt(2))^(4n) - 1/4. - Ignacio Larrosa Cañestro, Feb 27 2000

a(n) = 98*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 24. - Lekraj Beedassy, Jul 14 2008

EXAMPLE

a(2)=121 because this is the 2nd star number (A003154) that is a square.

MAPLE

Digits := 1000:q := seq(floor(evalf(( (5+2*sqrt(6))^n*(sqrt(6)-2)-(5-2*sqrt(6))^n*(sqrt(6)+2))^2/16)), n=1..100);

A006061:=-(1+22*z+z**2)/(z-1)/(z**2-98*z+1); # conjectured (correctly) by Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation

CROSSREFS

A007667 is 3*a(n)+2, sqrt(a(n)) is A054320. Cf. A003154.
