%N Integer coefficients a(n) of A(x), where a(n) = 1 or 2 for all n, such that A(x)^(1/2) has only integer coefficients.

%C More generally, the sequence "integer coefficients of A(x), where 1<=a(n)<=m, such that A(x)^(1/m) consists entirely of integer coefficients", appears to have a unique solution for all m. [That is true - see Theorem 17 of Heninger-Rains-Sloane (2006). - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Aug 27 2015] Is this sequence periodic? [It is not periodic for m = 2 or 3. Larger cases remain open. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Aug 27 2015]
