COMMENTS

The path may be open or closed. For larger n several solutions with the same number of segments exist.

It is conjectured that the sequence is identical with A125852 for all n>1. That means that it is always possible to find an Hamiltonian cycle on the maximum possible number of lattice points that can be covered by circular disks of diameter >=2. For the given additional terms it was easily possible to construct such closed paths by hand, using the lattice subset found by the exhaustive search for A125852. See the examples at the end of the linked pdf file a122226.pdf that were all generated without using a program. - Hugo Pfoertner, Jan 12 2007
