%N Fundamental positive solution x = x2(n) of the second class of the Pell equation x^2 - 2*y^2 = -A001132(n), n>=1 (primes congruent to {1,7} mod 8).

%C For the corresponding term y2(n) see A255248(n).

%C For the positive fundamental proper (sometimes called primitive) solutions x1(n) and y1(n) of the first class of this (generalized) Pell equation see A255235(n) and A255246(n).

%C The present solutions of this second class are the next to smallest positive ones. Note that for prime 2 only the first class exists.

%C For the derivation based on the book of Nagell see the comments on A254934 and A254938 for the primes 1 (mod 8) and 7 (mod 8) separately, where also the Nagell reference is given.

%F a(n)^2 - 2*A255248(n)^2 = -A001132(n), n >= 1, gives the second smallest positive (proper) solution of this (generalized) Pell equation.

%F a(n) = -(3*A255235(n+1) - 4*A255246(n+1)), n >= 1.

%e The first pairs [x1(n), y1(n)] of the fundamental positive solutions of this first class are
