COMMENTS

Quote from the link prompting this sequence: "A person who can, within a year, solve x^2 - 92y^2 = 1 is a mathematician." Brahmagupta [598-668] This sequence is computed with g(1e9,92) in the PARI program.

A Pell equation. - Benoit Cloitre, Feb 03 2006

FORMULA

a(0)=1, a(1)=1151 then a(n) = 2302*a(n-1) - a(n-2). - Benoit Cloitre, Feb 03 2006

G.f.: (1-1151x)/(1-2302x+x^2). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 18 2008

a(n) = (1/2)*((1151-240*sqrt(23))^n + (1151+240*sqrt(23))^n), with n >= 0. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 24 2008

EXAMPLE

1151^2 - 92 * 120^2 = 1, so 1151 is a term.
