Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The 2 equations are equivalent to the Pell equation x^2- 285*y^2=1,

with x=(285*k+17)/2 and y=A*B/2, case C=15 in A160682.

Also: the first differences of A078366.

Positive values of x (or y) satisfying x^2 - 17xy + y^2 + 15 = 0. - Colin Barker, Feb 14 2014

FORMULA

A(t+2) = 17*A(t+1)-A(t).

a(t) = ((285+15*w)*((17+w)/2)^(t-1)+(285-15*w)*((17-w)/2)^(t-1))/570, where w=sqrt(285).

a(t) = ceiling of ((285+15*w)*((17+w)/2)^(t-1))/570.

G.f.: x*(1-x)/(1-17*x+x^2).

a(n) = 17*a(n-1)-a(n-2). - Colin Barker, Feb 14 2014

MAPLE

t:=0: for a from 1 to 1000000 do b:=sqrt((19*a^2-4)/15):

if (trunc(b)=b) then t:=t+1: n:=(a^2-1)/15: print(t, a, b, n): end if: end do:
