 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (338*n-1)^2-(169*n^2-n)*(26)^2=1 can be written as A157999(n)^2-a(n)*(26)^2=1. LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Vincenzo Librandi, X^2-AY^2=1 E. J. Barbeau, Polynomial Excursions, Chapter 10: Diophantine equations (2010), pages 84-85 (row 14 in the first table at p. 85, case d(t) = t*(13^2*t-1)). Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1). FORMULA a(n) = 3*a(n-1) -3*a(n-2) +a(n-3). G.f.: x*(168+170*x)/(1-x)^3.
