COMMENTS

The identity (18n^2 + 1)^2 - (81n^2 + 9)*(2n)^2 = 1 can be written as a(n)^2 - A157888(n)*A005843(n+1)^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 05 2012

Sequence found by reading the line from 19, in the direction 19, 73, ... in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized hendecagonal numbers A195160. - Omar E. Pol, Nov 05 2012
