COMMENTS

For any positive integer n, if a number of the form m^2+1 is divisible by 5^n, then m mod 5^n must take one of two valuesone even, the other odd. This sequence gives the even residue. (The odd residues are in A259266.)

EXAMPLE

If m^2+1 is divisible by 5, then m mod 5 is either 2 or 3; the even value is 2, so a(1)=2.
If m^2+1 is divisible by 5^2, then m mod 5^2 is either 7 or 18; the even value is 18, so a(2)=18.
If m^2+1 is divisible by 5^3, then m mod 5^3 is either 57 or 68; the even value is 68, so a(3)=68.
