COMMENTS

a(n)+2 is prime for n=0,1. No others are prime for n <= 200. Compare A002110 and A078586. - T. D. Noe, Dec 01 2002

Also, a(n) is least hypotenuse of exactly A003462(n+1) Pythagorean triangles of which 2^n are primitive. - Lekraj Beedassy, Dec 06 2003

Also, a(n) are the record setting values of m, for the number of solutions to "m*k-1 is a square", for some k, 1<=k<m. There is one solution for m=2, and for a given m = a(n) there are 2^n solutions. For a given m there also 2^(n-1) solutions for primitively representing m as x^2 + y^2. See A008782. Also compare with A102476, which applies to "m*k+1 is a square". - Richard R. Forberg, Mar 18 2016
