COMMENTS

a(n)^2 - 42 (2*b(n))^2 = +1 with b(n):=A097309(n) gives all nonnegative solutions of this D:= 42*4= 168 Pell equation.

Numbers n such that 42*(n^2-1) is a square. [From Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 17 2010]

Except for the first term, positive values of x (or y) satisfying x^2 - 26xy + y^2 + 168 = 0. - Colin Barker, Feb 20 2014

FORMULA

a(n)=26*a(n-1) - a(n-2), a(-1) := 13, a(0)=1.

a(n)= T(n, 13)= (S(n, 26)-S(n-2, 26))/2 = S(n, 26)-13*S(n-1, 26) with T(n, x), resp. S(n, x), Chebyshev's polynomials of the first, resp.second, kind. See A053120 and A049310. S(n, 26)=A097309(n).

a(n)= (ap^n + am^n)/2 with ap := 13+2*sqrt(42) and am := 13-2*sqrt(42).

a(n)= sum(((-1)^k)*(n/(2*(n-k)))*binomial(n-k, k)*(2*13)^(n-2*k), k=0..floor(n/2)), n>=1.

G.f.: (1-13*x)/(1-26*x+x^2).

a(n)=sqrt(1 + 168*A097309(n)^2), n>=0.

a(n) = Cosh[2n*ArcSinh[Sqrt[6]]] - Herbert Kociemba, Apr 24 2008
