 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (5000*n^2 - 200*n + 1)^2 - (25*n^2 - n)*(1000*n - 20)^2 = 1 can be written as A157516(n)^2 - A157514(n)*a(n)^2 = 1 (see also the second part of the comment at A157514). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 26 2012 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Vincenzo Librandi, X^2-AY^2=1 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1).
