COMMENTS

Previous name was: The general form of the recurrences are the a(j), b(j) and n(j) solutions of the 2 equations problem: 13*n(j)+1=a(j)*a(j) and 15*n(j)+1=b(j)*b(j) with positive integer numbers.

FORMULA

The a(j) recurrence is a(1)=1; a(2)=27; a(t+2)=28*a(t+1)-a(t)

resulting in terms 1, 27, 755, 21113... (A159668)

The b(j) recurrence is b(1)=1; b(2)=29; b(t+2)=28*b(t+1)-b(t)

resulting in terms 1, 29, 811, 22679... (this sequence)

The n(j) recurrence is n(0)=n(1)=0; n(2)=56; n(t+3)=783*(n(t+2)-n(t+1))+n(t)

resulting in terms 0, 0, 56, 43848, 34289136... (A159673)
