 A240129 Triangular numbers that are squares of triangular numbers. 1
 0, 1, 36 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Ljunggren used p-adic methods to prove that 0, 1, and 36 are the only triangular numbers that are squares of triangular numbers. Same as: the only positive integer solutions of (x(x-1))^2 = 2y(y-1) are (x,y) = (1,1), (2,2), and (4,9). Cassels used elliptic curves to simplify Ljunggren's proof.
