COMMENTS

A198386(n) = a(n)^2.

A198441(n) = a(A198409(n)).

There is a connection to the leg sums of Pythagorean triangles.

See a comment on the primitive case under A198439, which applies mutatis mutandis. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 23 2013

Are these just the positive multiples of A001132? - Charles R Greathouse IV, May 28 2013

EXAMPLE

Connection to leg sums of Pythagorean triangles: a(2) = 14 because (in the notation of the Zumkeller link) (u,v,w)= (2,10,14) = 2*(1,5,7), and this corresponds to the non-primitive Pythagorean triangle 2*(x=(7-1)/1,y=(1+7)/2,z=5) = 2*(3,4,5) with leg sum 2*(3+4) = 14. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 23 2013

PROG

(Haskell)

a198390 n = a198390_list !! (n-1)

a198390_list = map (\(_, _, x) -> x) ts where

   ts = [(u, v, w) | w <- [1..], v <- [1..w-1], u <- [1..v-1],

                   w^2 - v^2 == v^2 - u^2]

(PARI) is(n)=my(t=n^2); forstep(i=2-n%2, n-2, 2, if(issquare((t+i^2)/2), return(1))); 0 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, May 28 2013
