 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Consider all sequences of numbers of the form m^2+h*m+1 (with h natural number and m = 0,1,2,3,4,5,...) which contain exactly 7 squares; the present sequence has the smallest value of h. Note that for 6 squares the smallest h is 23 and for 8 squares the smallest h is 37. For n < 365^2, the squares of the form n^2+731*n+1 are 1, 239121, 2653641, 24413481, 220255281, 1982831841, 17846020921; for n > 365^2-1 we have (n+365)^2 < n^2+731*n+1 < (n+366)^2 and therefore n^2+731*n+1 cannot be a square. a(A155095(k)) == 0 (mod 17).
