Twice A098297. [Peter Bala, Dec 31 2012]

Or, 3*A000217(X) is a square. [Zak Seidov, Apr 08 2009]

"You can find an infinite number of [different] triangular numbers such that when multipled together form a square number. For example, for every triangular number, T_n, there are an infinite number of other triangular numbers, T_m, such that T_n*T_m is a square. For example, T_2 * T_24 = 30^2." Pickover. [Robert G. Wilson v, Apr 01 2010]

FORMULA

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 4, a(0)=0, a(1)=2.

a(n) = -1/2+(1/4)*(5+2*sqrt(6))^n+(1/4)*(5-2*sqrt(6))^n, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jul 15 2008

a(n) = (A001079(n) - 1)/2. [Max Alekseyev, Nov 13 2009]

a(n) = 11*a(n-1) -11*a(n-2) +a(n-3) = 2*A098297(n). G.f.: -2*x*(1+x) / ( (x-1)*(x^2-10*x+1) ). [R. J. Mathar, Apr 20 2010]

a(n) = 2*A098297(n) = 1/2*(T(2*n,sqrt(3)) - 1), T(n,x) the n-th Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind. - Peter Bala, Dec 31 2012
