Supersequence of A000290, i.e., all perfect squares are in the sequence.

Solutions (x,y) are integral points on the elliptic curve x*y*(x+y-1)=n. - Georgi Guninski, Oct 25 2010

From Robert G. Wilson v, Oct 25 2010: (Start)

a(n) != 2 (mod 3) nor {2, 3} (mod 4) nor 3 (mod 5). a(n) == {0, 1, 4, 9, 12, 16, 21, 24, 25, 36, 37, 40, 45, 49, 52, 57} (mod 60).

Terms which are congruent to {0, 1, 4, 9, 12, 16, 21, 24, 25, 36, 37, 40, 45, 49, 52, 57} (mod 60) and are not members of the sequence: 21, 37, 52, 57, 61, 69, 76, 85, 96, 97, 109, 117, 120, 124, 129, 132, 136, 141, 145, 156, 157, 165, 172, 177, 181, ..., .

EXAMPLE

n=1 allows a solution (x,y,z)=(1,1,1), and is in the sequence.

n=4 allows solutions (x,y,z)=(1,2,2) and (2,1,2) and is in the sequence.
