COMMENTS

n^2 = 3*(2*x+4)^2+16.

Essentially the same as A011943. - Chris Boyd, Apr 18 2015

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (14,-1).

FORMULA

a(n+2) = 14*a(n+1)-a(n) for n>=2.

G.f.: x*(2-21*x+x^2)/(1-14*x+x^2). a(n)=7*A007655(n+2)-97*A007655(n+1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 11 2008

a(n) = -2*sqrt(3)*{[7-4*sqrt(3)]^(n-1)-[7+4*sqrt(3)]^(n-1)}+(7/2)*{[7+4*sqrt(3)]^(n-1)+[7 -4*sqrt(3)]^(n-1)}+[C(2*n,n) mod 2], with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 25 2008

EXAMPLE

The first examples are 2^3-0^3=2*2^2 ; 5^3-3^3=2*7^2 ; 57^3-55^3=2*97^2 ; 781^3-779^3=2*1351^2 ; 10865^3-10863^3=2*18817^2
