 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Also positive integers y in the solutions to 5*x^2-3*y^2+2*x+2*y+1 = 0, the corresponding values of x being A253304. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,62,-62,-1,1). FORMULA a(n) = a(n-1)+62*a(n-2)-62*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5). G.f.: -x*(x^4+3*x^3-53*x^2+27*x+2) / ((x-1)*(x^2-8*x+1)*(x^2+8*x+1)). EXAMPLE 2 is in the sequence because O(2) = 8 = 1+7 = H(1)+H(2).
