 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (441*n - 1)^2 - (441*n^2 - 2*n)*21^2 = 1 can be written as A158319(n)^2 - a(n)*21^2 = 1 (see Barbeau's paper in link). Also, the identity (388962*n^2 - 1764*n + 1)^2 - (441*n^2 - 2*n)*(18522*n - 42)^2 = 1 can be written as A157739(n)^2 - a(n)*A157738(n)^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 25 2012 This last formula is the case s=21 of the identity (2*s^4*n^2 - 4*s^2*n + 1)^2 - (s^2*n^2 - 2*n)*(2*s^3*n - 2*s)^2 = 1. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 05 2012 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 E.
