COMMENTS

Apparently this is a permutation of positive numbers. Out of the first 10000 terms the missing numbers are:

8974, 9298, 9342, 9380, 9386, 9425, 9429, 9454, 9495, 9497, 9525,...,

while the maximal term is a(9919)=10802.

Corresponding squares:

4, 9, 9, 1, 16, 16, 1, 16, 9, 4, 16, 16, 16, 25, 16, 25, 36, 49, 36, 1, 25, 64, 64, 1, ...
