COMMENTS

The Pell equation x^2 - 97*y^2 = -1 has only proper solutions, namely x(n) = 5604*a(n) and y(n) = 569*A227275(n), n >= 0.

FORMULA

a(n) = S(n, 2*62809633) + S(n-1, 2*62809633), n >= 0, with the Chebyshev S-polynomials (see A049310) with S(n, -1) = 0. Here  62809633, a prime, is the fundamental x solution of the Pell equation x^2  - 97*y^2 = +1.

a(n) = 2*62809633*a(n-1) - a(n-2), n >= 1, with inputs a(-1) = -1 and a(0) = 1.

O.g.f.: (1 + x)/(1 - 2*62809633*x + x^2).

EXAMPLE

n=0: (5604*1)^2 - 97*(569*1)^2 = -1. Proper fundamental (positive) solution.

n=1: (5604*125619267)^2 - 97*(569*125619265)^2 = -1, where 5604*125619267 = (2^2*3*467)*(3*41873089) = 703970372268 and 569*125619265  = 569*(5*401*62653) = 71477361785.
