 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS On Jun 17 2010, Zhi-Wei Sun conjectured that a(n) is an integer for every n=1,2,3,... and that a(p) == 3(p/3) (mod p) for any prime p, where (p/3) is the Legendre symbol. He also observed that Sum_{k=0..n-1} (2k+1) T_k*3^{n-1-k} = n * Sum_{k=0..n-1} C(n-1,k)*(-1)^(n-1-k)*(k+1)*C(2k,k).

EXAMPLE For n=3 we have a(3) = (5*T_0^2 + 13*T_1^2 + 21*T_2^2)/3 = (5 + 13 + 21*9)/3 = 69.
