Index entries for sequences related to Chebyshev polynomials.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (258, -1).

FORMULA

a(n) = S(n, 2*129) - S(n-1, 2*129) = T(2*n+1, sqrt(65))/sqrt(65), with Chebyshev polynomials of the 2nd and first kind. See A049310 for the triangle of S(n, x)= U(n, x/2) coefficients. S(-1, x) := 0 =: U(-1, x); and A053120 for the T-triangle.

a(n) = ((-1)^n)*S(2*n, 16*I) with the imaginary unit I and Chebyshev polynomials S(n, x) with coefficients shown in A049310.

G.f.: (1-x)/(1-258*x+x^2).

a(n) = 258*a(n-1) - a(n-2), n>1 ; a(0)=1, a(1)=257. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 18 2008

EXAMPLE

(x,y) = (8,1), (2072,257), (534568,66305), ... give the positive integer solutions to x^2 - 65*y^2 =-1.
