Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

FORMULA

A078144 = { A070284[k] | A070284[k+1] = A070284[k]+1 }. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 01 2016

a(n) = A188296(n) - 2. - Amiram Eldar, Feb 09 2021

EXAMPLE

Squares dividing 5-string=844+j, j=0,..,4 are as follows:4,169,9,121,16 resp. Each term initiates an arithmetic progression with suitable large difference. Such progressions are constructible by solving suitable linear Diophantine equations. E.g., quintet = {mk+3689649, mk+3689650, mk+3689651, mk+3689652, mk+3689653} = {9(592900k+409961, 25(213444k+147586, 49(108900k+75299, 4(1334025k+922413), 121(44100k+30493)}; m=2310*2310=A002110(5)^2=A061742(5)=5336100.
