COMMENTS

All terms of this sequence occur also in A085514. Bremner et al. have shown that the problem is equivalent to finding rational points of infinite order on the elliptic curve E_n : u^2 = v^3 + (n^2  6*n  3)*v^2 + 16*n*v
The only values of n < 1000 with positive representations are shown in bold type in Table 1 in Section 8 of Bremner et al.'s paper (except for the singular value n=9 and the case n=10)  Herman Jamke (hermanjamke(AT)fastmail.fm), Jan 09 2008

EXAMPLE

a(2)=(1+1+2)*(1/1+1/1+1/2)=10.
a(3)=(1+2+3)*(1/1+1/2+1/3)=6*(11/6)=11.
a(4)=(2+3+10)*(1/2+1/3+1/10)=14.
a(12)=(561+6450+13889)*(1/561+1/6450+1/13889)=42.
