 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (14641*n^2 - 4598*n + 362)^2 - (121*n^2 - 38*n + 3)*(1331*n - 209)^2 = 1 can be written as A157445(n)^2 - a(n)*A157444(n)^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 26 2012 The continued fraction expansion of sqrt(a(n)) is [11n-2; {3, 1, 1, 1, 11n-3, 1, 1, 1, 3, 22n-4}]. - Magus K.
