COMMENTS

The sequence could also include -11, -8 and -4; and if N is in the sequence, then so is -23-N.

Equivalently, 24*a(n)^2 + 552*a(n) + 4324 is a square.

All sequences of this type (i.e., sequences with fixed offset k, and a discernible pattern: k=0...23 for this sequence, k=0...22 for A269447, k=0..1 for A001652) can be extended using a formula such as x(n) = a*x(n-p) - x(n-2p) + b, where a and b are various constants, and p is the period of the series. Alternatively, 'p' can be considered the number of concurrent series. - Daniel Mondot, Aug 05 2016

FORMULA

Recurrence: a(n+12) = 10a(n+6) - a(n) + 92.

O.g.f.: x*(-1-8*x-11*x^2-5*x^3-19*x^4-32*x^5-35*x^6+4*x^7+3*x^8+x^9+3*x^10+4*x^11+4*x^12) / ((-1+x) * (1-10*x^6+x^12)). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 02 2007
