a(n) = (x(n)^2 + 1)/m(n), with m(n) = A002559(n) (Markoff numbers) and x(n)= A324601(n), for n >= 3. The Markoff uniqueness conjecture is assumed to be true.

COMMENTS

See the Aigner reference, Corollary 3.17., p. 58.
If the equation x^2 + 1 = a(n)*m(n), with m(n) = A002559(n) holds for just one integral x = x(n) in the interval [1, floor(m(n)/2)] then the Markoff uniqueness conjecture is true. x(n) = A324601(n) (if the Markoff conjecture holds).
