 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (13122*n^2 - 324*n + 1)^2 - (81*n^2 - 2*n)*(1458*n - 18)^2 = 1 can be written as A157509(n)^2 - A157507(n)*a(n)^2 = 1 (see also second comment at A157509). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 26 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).
