%N Numbers n such that 2*n*(n+2) is a square.

%C Even-indexed terms are squares. Their square roots form sequence A005319. Odd-indexed terms divided by 2 are squares. Their square roots form the sequence A002315. (Index starts at 0.)

%H <a href="/index/Rec#order_03">Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients</a>, signature (7,-7,1).

%F a(n) = A001541(n) - 1.

%F a(n) = (1/2)*(s^n + t^n) - 1, where s = 3 + 2*sqrt(2), t = 3 - 2*sqrt(2). Note: s=1/t. a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 4, a(0)=0, a(1)=2.

%F a(n) = 1/kappa(sqrt(2)/A001542(n)); a(n) = 1/kappa(sqrt(8)/A005319(n)) where kappa(x) is the sum of successive remainders by computing the Euclidean algorithm for (1, x). - _Thomas Baruchel_, Nov 29 2003

%F G.f.: -2*x^2*(x+1)/((x-1)*(x^2-6*x+1)). - _Colin Barker_, Nov 22 2012
