COMMENTS
The identity (36*n + 1)^2 - (36*n^2 + 2*n)*6^2 = 1 can be written as a(n)^2 - A158064(n)*6^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 11 2012
Parametrize Pythagorean triangles with parameters a and b and side lengths x = b^2 - a^2, y = 2*a*b and z = a^2 + b^2. Generate one Pythagorean triangle with a=n-1 and b=n and side lengths (x1, y1, z1), and another one with a=n, b=n+1 and side lengths (x2, y2, z2). Then 2*a(n) = x2 - x1 + 12*(y2-y1) + 6*(z2-z1). - J. M. Bergot, Jul 16 2013
