%C Continued fraction expansion of tanh(1/4). - _Benoit Cloitre_, Dec 17 2002

%C Consider all primitive Pythagorean triples (a,b,c) with c-a=8, sequence gives values for b. (Corresponding values for a are A078371(n), while c follows A078370(n).) - Lambert Klasen (Lambert.Klasen(AT)gmx.net), Nov 19 2004

%C Also numbers of the form a^2 + b^2 + c^2 + d^2, where a,b,c,d are odd integers. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Dec 01 2006

%C If X is an n-set and Y_i (i=1,2,3) mutually disjoint 2-subsets of X then a(n-5) is equal to the number of 4-subsets of X intersecting each Y_i (i=1,2,3). - _Milan Janjic_, Aug 26 2007

%C From the Cody Clifton's reference : "There are no 5/8 commutative groups of order 4 mod 8. The maximum commutativity of a non-Abelian group is 5/8, and this degree of commutativity only occurs when the order of the center of the group is equal to one fourth the order of the group [proof given]". - _Jonathan Vos Post_, May 23 2012

%C A007814(a(n)) = 2; A037227(a(n)) = 5. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jun 30 2012

%C With the substitution n -> n-2 this is 8n-12, as in the paper by Gu and Hao. - _Jonathan Vos Post_, Sep 23 2013

%C Numbers k such that 3^k + 1 is divisible by 41. - _Bruno Berselli_, Aug 22 2018

%C Numbers whose even divisors are twice the odd ones. - _Paolo P. Lava_, Oct 17 2018
