COMMENTS

A floretion-generated sequence relating to NSW numbers and numbers n such that (n^2 - 8)/2 is a square. It is also possible to label this sequence as the "tesfor-transform of the zero-sequence" under the floretion given in the program code, below. This is because the sequence "vesseq" would normally have been A046184 (indices of octagonal numbers which are also a square) using the floretion given. This floretion, however, was purposely "altered" in such a way that the sequence "vesseq" would turn into A000004. As (a(n)) would not have occurred under "natural" circumstances, one could speak of it as the transform of A000004.

From Wolfdieter Lang, Feb 05 2015: (Start)

All positive solutions x = a(n) of the (generalized) Pell equation x^2 - 2*y^2 = +7 based on the  fundamental solution (x2,y2) = (5,3) of the second class of (proper) solutions. The corresponding y solutions are given by y(n) = A253811(n).

All other positive solutions come from the first class of (proper) solutions based on the fundamental solution (x1,y1) = (3,1). These are given in A038762 and A038761.

All solutions of this Pell equation are found in A077443(n+1) and A077442(n), for n >= 0. See, e.g., the Nagell reference on how to find all solutions.

FORMULA

a(n) = A002315(n) + A077445(n+1). Note: the offset of A077445 is 1. a(n+1) - a(n) = 2*A054490(n+1)

a(n)=6*a(n-1)-a(n-2), a(0)=5, a(1)=27. [Philippe Deléham, Nov 17 2008]

a(n)=((5+sqrt18)(3+sqrt8)^n+(5-sqrt18)(3-sqrt8)^n)/2 offset 0. a(n)=third binomial transform of 5,12,40,96,320,768... [Al Hakanson (hawkuu(AT)gmail.com), Aug 17 2009]

a(n) = rational part of z(n, with z(n) = (5+3*sqrt(2))*(3+2*sqrt(2))^n), n >= 0, the general positive solutions of the second class of proper solutions. See the preceding formula. - Wolfdieter Lang, Feb 05 2015
