COMMENTS

Positive integers n such that A000217(n) + A000217(n + 1) + A000217(n + 2) + A000217(n + 3) is a square (=A075870(n+1)^2).

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7,-7,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = A002315(n) - 2.

G.f. x*(1+x)*(x-5) / ( (x-1)*(1-6*x+x^2) ). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 19 2011

a(n+2) = 6*a(n+1) - a(n) + 8; a(n+3) = 7*a(n+2) - 7*a(n+1) + a(n); a(n+1) = (-4 + (7 + 5*r)*(3 + 2*r)^n + (7 - 5*r)*(3 - 2*r)^n)/2 where r = sqrt(2). - Paul Weisenhorn, Jan 13 2013
