 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS A Chebyshev T-sequence with Diophantine property. a(n) gives the general (nonnegative integer) solution of the Pell equation a^2 - 437*b^2 =+4 with companion sequence b(n)=A092499(n), n>=0.

FORMULA a(n) = S(n, 21) - S(n-2, 21) = 2*T(n, 21/2) with S(n, x) := U(n, x/2), S(-1, x) := 0, S(-2, x) := -1. S(n, 21)=A092499(n+1). U-, resp. T-, are Chebyshev's polynomials of the second, resp. first, case. See A049310 and A053120. a(n) = ap^n + am^n, with ap := (21+sqrt(437))/2 and am := (21-sqrt(437))/2. G.f.: (2-21*x)/(1-21*x+x^2).
