COMMENTS

Consider the problem of finding all integers n such that the Pell equation x^2  n*y^2 = 1 is solvable in integers x,y with y != 0. Beach and Williams found that there are 102662 such values of n in the range 1 <= n <= 10^6.
Of these, 3531 "exceptional" values of n were not predicted by a certain list of criteria given in their paper. These 3531 exceptional values fall into 10 classes given in sequences A212074A212083.
