Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8.

FORMULA

n = sqrt(a(1)^2+sqrt(a(2)^2+sqrt(a(3)^2+(....+sqrt(a(n)^2)))...).

Equals main diagonal of triangle A166994. [Paul D. Hanna, Nov 18 2009]

EXAMPLE

k=55 is the least integer such that sqrt(1^2+sqrt(3^2+sqrt(k^2)))=3 is an integer hence a(3)=55.
