COMMENTS
Integers k such that k^2 = Sum_{i=1..x} (k+i) for some value of x. 3 is a term because 3^2=9 and 4+5=9; 44 is a term because 44^2=1936 and the sum of (45,46,47,...,76) = 1936. - Gil Broussard, Dec 23 2008
Also the index of the first of two consecutive octagonal numbers whose sum is equal to the sum of two consecutive squares. - Colin Barker, Dec 20 2014
Also the index of a triangular number included in A239071. - Ivan Neretin, May 31 2015

FORMULA
From R. J. Mathar, Apr 15 2010: (Start)
a(n) = +15*a(n-1) -15*a(n-2) +a(n-3).
G.f.: x*(-3 + x) / ((x - 1)*(x^2 - 14*x + 1)). (End)
From Michael Somos, Jul 27 2012: (Start)
a(n) = A109437(2*n).
a(-1 - n) = -A109437(2*n + 1). (End)
a(n) = (A001353(n+1)^2 - A001075(n)^2)/4. - Richard R. Forberg, Aug 26 2013
a(n) = (-2-(7-4*sqrt(3))^n*(-1+sqrt(3))+(1+sqrt(3))*(7+4*sqrt(3))^n)/12. - Colin Barker, Mar 05 2016
