 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Also positive integers x in the solutions to 3*x^2 - 4*y^2 - x + 4*y - 2 = 0, the corresponding values of y being A254710. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,14,-14,-1,1). FORMULA a(n) = a(n-1)+14*a(n-2)-14*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5). G.f.: -x*(x^4+x^3-6*x^2+x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-4*x+1)*(x^2+4*x+1)). EXAMPLE 10 is in the sequence because the 10th pentagonal number is 145, which is also the 9th centered square number.
