COMMENTS

Analogous to A033316 for x^2-D*y^2=1, and D is required to be prime, and for record values of x.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..51.

EXAMPLE

For D=43, the least x for which x^2-D*y^2=-2 has a solution is 59. The next prime, D, for which x^2-D*y^2=-2 has a solution is 59, but the smallest x in this case is 23, which is less than 59. The next prime, D, after 59 for which x^2-D*y^2=-2 has a solution is 67 and the least x for which it has a solution is 221, which is larger than 59, so it is a new record value. 67 is a term of this sequence and 221 is a term of A336791, but 59 is not a term here because the least x for which x^2-47*y^2=-2 has a solution at D=59 is not a record value.
