COMMENTS

For the first 3 terms, the above "base 6" interpretation is questionable, since they have only 1 digit in base 6. It is understood that dropping this digit yields 0. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2012

Base-6 analog of A055792 (base 2), A055793 (base 3), A055808 (base 4), A055812 (base 5), A204517 (base 7), A204503 (base 9) and A023110 (base 10). - M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2012

Index to sequences related to truncating digits of squares.

FORMULA

a(n) = A204518(n)^2. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2012

Empirical g.f.: -x^2*(9*x^8+100*x^7+25*x^6-162*x^5-296*x^4-74*x^3+9*x^2+4*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2+x+1)*(x^6-98*x^3+1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 15 2014

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 100 because 100 = 10^2 = 244 base 6 and 24 base 6 = 16 = 4^2.

PROG

(PARI) b=6; for(n=1, 2e9, issquare(n^2\b) & print1(n^2, ", ")) \\ M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2012
