Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A057102 Congrua (possible solutions to the congruum problem): numbers n such that there are integers x, y and z with n = x^2-y^2 = z^2-x^2. 13

COMMENTS

Each congruum is a multiple of 24; it cannot be a square.

Numbers of the form (4(x^3y-xy^3) (where x,y are integrs and x>=y). Squares of these numbers are of the form N^4-K^2 (where N belongs to A135786 and K to A135789 or A135790). Proof uses identity: (4(x^3y-xy^3))^2=(x^2+y^2)^4-(x^4 - 6x^2 y^2 + y^4)^2 - Artur Jasinski, Nov 29 2007, Nov 14 2008

FORMULA

a(n) = 4 * A073120(n) [From Max Alekseyev, Nov 14 2008]

EXAMPLE

a(9)=840 since 840=29^2-1^2=41^2-29^2 (indeed also 840=37^2-23^2=47^2-37^2)

MATHEMATICA

a = {}; Do[Do[w = 4x^3y - 4x y^3; If[w > 0 && w < 10000, AppendTo[a, w]], {x, y, 1000}], {y, 1, 1000}]; Union[a] - Artur Jasinski, Nov 29 2007
