COMMENTS

No other terms < 10^6. - T. D. Noe, Aug 25 2012

This sequence maps to the Ramanujan-Nagell squares (8*(n*(n+1)/2)+1) and is therefore complete. - Raphie Frank, Aug 26 2012

All terms in this sequence follow form floor[2^((2*x - 1)/2)]; x = {0, 1, 2, 3, 7}. - Raphie Frank, Mar 03 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = -1 + ceiling[sqrt(2^(A060728(n) - 2) - 1)]. - Raphie Frank, Mar 31 2013

a(n) = (|(((1+i*sqrt(7))/2)^(A060728(n) - 2) + ((1-i*sqrt(7))/2)^(A060728(n) - 2))| - 1)/2. - Raphie Frank, Dec 25 2013
