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
n appears A331671(n) times.  Ray Chandler, Feb 26 2020

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 nonprimitive Pythagorean triangle 2*(x=(71)/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 !! (n1)
a198390_list = map (\(_, _, x) > x) ts where
ts = [(u, v, w)  w < [1..], v < [1..w1], u < [1..v1],
w^2  v^2 == v^2  u^2]
(PARI) is(n)=my(t=n^2); forstep(i=2n%2, n2, 2, if(issquare((t+i^2)/2), return(1))); 0 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, May 28 2013
