 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The identity (5000*n^2 - 200*n + 1)^2 - (25*n^2 - n)*(1000*n - 20)^2 = 1 can be written as A157516(n)^2 - a(n)*A157515(n)^2 = 1. This is the case s=5 of the identity (8*n^2*s^4 - 8*n*s^2 + 1)^2 - (n^2*s^2 - n)*(8*n*s^3 - 4*s)^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 26 2012 The continued fraction expansion of sqrt(a(n)) is [5n-1; {1, 8, 1, 10n-2}]. For n=1, this collapses to [4; {1, 8}]. - Magus K.
