COMMENTS

These are the only square tribonacci numbers having indices < 47000.

Next term, if it exists, is too large to present here. - Robert G. Wilson v, Apr 24 2007

Indices of the square tribonacci numbers: 1,4,9,15,17.

The square Fibonacci numbers seem to be even rarer, namely just 1 & 144. - Robert G. Wilson v, Apr 24 2007

It is very likely that there are no further terms. - N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 25 2007

Using modular arithmetic and quadratic residues, it can be shown that there are no additional squares in the first 10^9 tribonacci numbers. - T. D. Noe, Jun 22 2007
