 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Mordell shows that the only integer points on the elliptic curve y*(y+1) = x*(x+1)*(x+2) have x = -2, -1, 0, 1, 5, corresponding to the products 0, 6, 210. However, there are infinitely many rational points generated from (x,y) = (0,0) by the chord-and-tangent process. - Jonathan Sondow, Oct 12 2013 REFERENCES Louis J. Mordell, Diophantine Equations, Academic Press 1969, p. 257. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..3. FORMULA Terms can be derived from the integral solutions to the elliptic curve y^2 = x^3 - 16*x + 16.
