 A030063 Fermat's Diophantine m-tuple: 1 + the product of any two distinct terms is a square. 9
 0, 1, 3, 8, 120 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Baker and Davenport proved that no other positive integer can replace 120 and still preserve the property that 1 + the product of any two distinct terms is a square. In particular, the sequence cannot be extended to another integer term. However, it can be extended to another rational term - see A192629. - Jonathan Sondow, Jul 11 2011 It is conjectured that there do not exist five strictly positive integers with the property that 1 + the product of any two distinct terms is a square. (See Dujella's links.) - Jonathan Sondow, Apr 04 2013 Other such quadruples can be generated using the formula F(2n), F(2n + 2), F(2n + 4) and F(2n + 1)F(2n + 2)F(2n + 3) given in Koshy's book. - Alonso del Arte, Jan 18 2011 Other such quadruples are generated by Euler's formula a, b, a+b+2*r, 4*r*(r+a)*(r+b), where 1+a*b = r^2. Seems to be equivalent to: 1 + the product of any two distinct terms is a perfect power. Tested up to 10^10. - Robert C. Lyons, Jun 30 2016 Seems to be equivalent to: 1 + the product of any two distinct terms is a powerful number. Tested up to 1.2*10^9. - Robert C. Lyons, Jun 30 2016 REFERENCES M.
