COMMENTS

n is a "congruum" iff n/4 is the area of a Pythagorean triangle, so these are the numbers 4*A009112.

Each congruum is a multiple of 24; it cannot be a square.

EXAMPLE

a(11)=840 since 840=29^2-1^2=41^2-29^2 (indeed also 840=37^2-23^2=47^2-37^2).

MATHEMATICA

r[n_] := Reduce[0 < y < x && 0 < x < z && n == x^2 - y^2 == z^2 - x^2, {x, y, z}, Integers];

Reap[For[n = 24, n < 10^4, n += 24, rn = r[n]; If[rn =!= False, Print[n, " ", rn]; Sow[n]]]][[2, 1]] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Feb 25 2019 *)
