COMMENTS
Conjecture: (i) a(n) is always positive and odd, and not congruent to 7 modulo 8.
(ii) For any odd prime p, if p == 1 (mod 3) and p = x^2 + 3*y^2 with x == 1 (mod 3), then a(p-1) == (-1)^{(p-1)/2}*(2*x-p/(2*x)) (mod p^2); if p == 2 (mod 3) then a(p-1) == (-1)^{(p+1)/2}*3p/binomial((p+1)/2,(p+1)/6) (mod p^2).
