(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A221472 Integers n such that n^2 is the difference of two Lucas numbers (A000204). 2

COMMENTS

This sequence is similar to the one for Fibonacci numbers (A219114) and appears to be finite also. See A221471 for an infinite version of this sequence.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7.

EXAMPLE

The only known square differences of Lucas numbers:

1^2 = L(3)-L(2) = 4-3,

2^2 = L(4)-L(2) 7-3 = L(5)-L(4) = 11-7,

5^2 = L(7)-l(3) = 29-4,

6^2 = L(8)-L(5) = 47-11,

14^2 = L(11)-L(2) = 199-3,

57^2 = L(17)-L(12) = 3571-322.

MATHEMATICA

t = Union[Flatten[Abs[Table[LucasL[n] - LucasL[i], {n, 120}, {i, n}]]]]; t2 = Select[t, IntegerQ[Sqrt[#]] &]; Sqrt[t2]
