COMMENTS

The corresponding values of y are given by a(n+2).

Also the solutions to 21x^2-20 is a perfect square. - Jaimal Ichharam, Jul 13 2014

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,5,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*a(n-2)-a(n-4).

G.f.: -x*(x-1)*(x^2+3*x+1) / (x^4-5*x^2+1).

EXAMPLE

9 is in the sequence because (x, y) = (9, 43) is a solution to x^2 - 5xy + y^2 + 5 = 0.

MAPLE

A237254 := proc(n)

    coeftayl( -x*(x-1)*(x^2+3*x+1) / (x^4-5*x^2+1), x=0, n);

end proc:
