 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Used for all positive integer solutions of Pell equation x^2 - 53*y^2 = -4. See A097837 with A097838. a(n-1), with a(-1) := 0, and b(n) := A099368(n) give the proper and improper nonnegative solutions of the Pell equation b(n)^2 - 53*(7*a(n-1))^2 = +4, n >= 0. - Wolfdieter Lang, Jun 27 2013 LINKS Indranil Ghosh, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..584 R.

FORMULA a(n)= S(n, 51)=U(n, 51/2)= S(2*n+1, sqrt(53))/sqrt(53) with S(n, x)=U(n, x/2) Chebyshev's polynomials of the second kind, A049310. S(-1, x)= 0 = U(-1, x). a(n)=51*a(n-1)-a(n-2), n >= 1; a(0)=1, a(1)=51; a(-1):=0. a(n)=(ap^(n+1) - am^(n+1))/(ap-am) with ap := (51+7*sqrt(53))/2 and am := (51-7*sqrt(53))/2 = 1/ap.
