COMMENTS

The expression 2*n^2 + c with c = 49 yields more squares than any other value of c in the range 1 < c < 100 and n < 5*10^4. - K. D. Bajpai, Nov 04 2013

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,0,6,0,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6*a(n-3) - a(n-6), with initial terms 4, 6, 14, 30, 40, 84. - T. D. Noe, Nov 04 2013

From G. C. Greubel, Aug 12 2021: (Start)

a(n) = 2*A276600(n+1).

G.f.: (2*x)*(2 + 3*x + 7*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 2*x^4)/(1 - 6*x^3 + x^6). (End)

EXAMPLE

a(12) = 2856; as mod(12,3) = 0, a(12) = 14*A001109(12/3) = 204*14 = 2856; also 2*2856^2 = 4039^2 - 49, ie A106525(12)^2 - 49;

a(13) = 5980; as mod(13,3) = 1, a(13) = A001109(4+2) - A001109(4+1) + A001109(4) + A001109(4-1) = 6930 - 1189 + 204 + 35 = 5980; also 2*5980^2 = 8457^2 - 49, ie A106525(13)^2 - 49;

a(14) = 7950; as mod(14,3) = 2, a(14) = A001109(4+2) + A001109(4+1) - A001109(4) + A001109(4-1) = 6930 + 1189 - 204 + 35 = 7950; also 2*7950^2 = 11243^2 - 49, ie A106525(14)^2 - 49.
