COMMENTS
The identity (10368*n^2 - 15840*n + 6049)^2 - (36*n^2 - 55*n + 21)*(1728*n - 1320)^2 = 1 can be written as A157264(n)^2 - a(n)*A157263(n)^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 27 2012
The continued fraction expansion of sqrt(a(n)) is [6n-5; {2, 2, 2, 12n-10}]. For n=1, this collapses to [1; {2}]. - Magus K. Chu, Sep 05 2022
