 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This sequence is part of a solution of a more general problem involving 2 equations, three sequences a(n), b(n), c(n) and a constant A:     A    * c(n)+1 = a(n)^2,    (A+1) * c(n)+1 = b(n)^2, for details see comment in A157014. A157879 is the c(n) sequence for A=7. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..300 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (899,-899,1).
