COMMENTS

The identity (441*n + 1)^2 - (441*n^2 + 2*n)*21^2 = 1 can be written as A158322(n)^2 - a(n)*21^2 = 1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 24 2012

Also, the identity (388962*n^2 + 1764*n + 1)^2 - (441*n^2 + 2*n)*(18522*n + 42)^2 = 1 can be written as A157741(n)^2 - (n)*A157740(n)^2 = 1 (see the second comment at A157741). - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 05 2012
