COMMENTS
For n>1: a(n) = A176271(n+2,n-1). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 13 2010
a(n-2) = n*(n + 1) - 7, n>=0, with a(-2) = -7, a(-1) = -5 and a(0) = -1, gives the values for a*c of indefinite binary quadratic forms [a, b, c] of discriminant D = 29 for b = 2*n + 1. In general D = b^2 - 4*a*c > 0 and the form [a, b, c] is a*x^2 + b*x*y + c*y^2. - Wolfdieter Lang, Aug 16 2013
Numbers m such that 4m+29 is an odd square, starting with 7^2 = A016754(3). - Bruce J. Nicholson, Jul 11 2017
