 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (10368*n^2 - 288*n + 1)^2 - (36*n^2-n)*(1728*n-24)^2 = 1 can be written as A157288(n)^2 - A157286(n)*a(n)^2 = 1 (see also second part of the initial comment in A157286). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 28 2012 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Vincenzo Librandi, X^2-AY^2=1 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1).
