 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS a(m) where m is a positive integer are the only positive integer values of t for which the Binet-de Moivre Formula of the recurrence b(n) = 8*b(n-1) + t*b(n-2) with b(0) = 0 and b(1) = 1 has a root which is a square. In particular, sqrt(8^2 + 4*t) is a positive integer since 8^2 + 4*t = 8^2 + 4*a(m) = (2*m + 8)^2. Thus, the characteristics roots are r1 = 8 + m and r2 = -m. - Felix P.
