%N a(n) = number of integral points on the elliptic curve y^2 = x^3 - (n^2)*x + 1, considering only nonnegative values of y.

%C For n>3, the number of integral points on y = x^3 - (n^2)*x + 1 is at least 11. These 11 points correspond to the solutions x = {-1, 0, n, -n, n + 2, -n + 2, n^2 - 1, n^2 - 2n + 2, n^2 + 2n + 2, n^4 + 2n, n^4 - 2n}.

%e a(0) = 3 because the integer points on y^2 = x^3 + 1 are (-1, 0), (0, 1), and (2, 3).

%Y Cf. A081119, A081120, A259191.
