COMMENTS

Conjecture: There are no perfect squares in this sequence (in spite of all numbers being congruent to 0 or 1 mod 4).

If any perfect square occurred in this sequence then a septic trinomial x^7 + A*x^2 + B with two irreducible factors of degree 3 and 4 would exist.

This sequence is subset of A079896.
