This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (441*n + 1)^2 - (441*n^2 + 2*n)*21^2 = 1 can be written as A158322(n)^2 - a(n)*21^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 24 2012 Also, the identity (388962*n^2 + 1764*n + 1)^2 - (441*n^2 + 2*n)*(18522*n + 42)^2 = 1 can be written as A157741(n)^2 - (n)*A157740(n)^2 = 1 (see the second comment at A157741). - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 05 2012 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Vincenzo Librandi, X^2-AY^2=1 E.
