COMMENTS

3*a(n)^2 - 5*b(n)^2 = 7, with the companion sequence b(n)= A077243(n).

The even part is A077246(n) with Diophantine companion A077245(n).

FORMULA

a(n)= (2*T(n+1, 4)+T(n, 4))/3, with T(n, x) Chebyshev's polynomials of the first kind, A053120. T(n, 4)= A001091(n).

G.f.: (3-2*x)/(1-8*x+x^2).

From Colin Barker, Oct 12 2015: (Start)

a(n) = (((4-sqrt(15))^n * (-10+3*sqrt(15)) + (4+sqrt(15))^n * (10+3*sqrt(15)))) / (2*sqrt(15)).

a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - a(n-2).

(End)

EXAMPLE

22 = a(1) = sqrt((5*A077243(1)^2 + 7)/3) = sqrt((5*17^2 + 7)/3) = sqrt(484) = 22.
