COMMENTS

The identity (16*(n-1)+15)^2-(16*n^2-2*n)*4^2=1 can be written as A125169(n-1)^2-a(n)*4^2=1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 01 2012

Sequence found by reading the line from 14, in the direction 14, 60,... in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized decagonal numbers A074377. - Omar E. Pol, Nov 02 2012
