COMMENTS

Mohanty and Mohanty prove in Corollary 2.6 that these numbers are Pythagorean. The number a(n) is primitive Pythagorean if Lucas(n) and Lucas(n+1) have opposite parity. Every third number, starting at a(1) = 84, is not primitive Pythagorean.

Since a(n) = L(n+1)*L(n+2)*(L(n+2)^2-L(n+1)^2), these numbers are in A073120, - Robert Israel, Apr 06 2015

FORMULA

G.f.: 6*(x^4-4*x^3-24*x^2+6*x-4) / ((x-1)*(x^2-7*x+1)*(x^2+3*x+1)). - Colin Barker, Oct 29 2013

From Robert Israel, Apr 06 2015 (Start):

a(n+5) = 5*a(n+4)+15*a(n+3)-15*a(n+2)-5*a(n+1)+a(n).

a(n) = -A228873(n+3)+4*A228873(n+2)+24*A228873(n+1)-6*A228873(n)+4*A228873(n-1) for n >= 2. (End)
