COMMENTS

The members of each quartet are related by the Diophantine formula,

( (4*k-3)^2+(4*k-2)^2 ) * ( (4*k-1)^2+(4*k)^2 ) = a(4*k)^2 + a(4*k+1)^2 = a(4*k+2)^2 + a(4*k+3)^2 .

FORMULA

a(n)= a(n-1) -a(n-2) +a(n-3) +2*a(n-4) -2*a(n-5) +2*a(n-6) -2*a(n-7) -a(n-8) +a(n-9) -a(n-10) +a(n-11).

EXAMPLE

k=1 contributes the quartet (2,11,10,5). k=2 contributes (2,83,82,13) etc.
