COMMENTS

a(143+286k)-1 and a(143+286k)+1 are consecutive odd powerful numbers. See A076445. - T. D. Noe, May 04 2006

Except for the first term, positive values of x (or y) satisfying x^2 - 24xy + y^2 + 143 = 0. - Colin Barker, Feb 19 2014

FORMULA

a(n+1)^2 - 143*b(n)^2 = 1 for n>=0, with the companion sequence b(n)=A077423(n).

a(n) = 24*a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>0, a(-1) := 12, a(0)=1.

a(n) = T(n, 12)= (S(n, 24)-S(n-2, 24))/2 = S(n, 24)-11*S(n-1, 24) with T(n, x), resp. S(n, x), Chebyshev's polynomials of the first, resp. second, kind. See A053120 and A049310. S(n, 24)=A077423(n).

a(n) = (ap^n + am^n)/2, with ap := 12+sqrt(143) and am := 12-sqrt(143).

a(n) = sum( ((-1)^k)*(n/(2*(n-k)))*binomial(n-k, k)*(2*12)^(n-2*k), k=0..floor(n/2) ) for n>=1.

a(n+1) = sqrt(1 + 143*A077423(n)^2) for n>=0.

G.f.: (1-12*x)/(1-24*x+x^2).
