COMMENTS

Also positive integers y in the solutions to 3*x^2 - 4*y^2 - x + 4*y - 2 = 0, the corresponding values of x being A254709.

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^3+7*x^2-x-1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-4*x+1)*(x^2+4*x+1)).

EXAMPLE

9 is in the sequence because the 9th centered square number is 145, which is also the 10th pentagonal number.

PROG

(PARI) Vec(x*(x^3+7*x^2-x-1)/((x-1)*(x^2-4*x+1)*(x^2+4*x+1)) + O(x^100))
