Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A347595 a(0) = 1; for n>0, a(n) is the smallest positive integer that has not previously occurred such that a(n-1)^2 + n^2 + a(n) is a square. 2

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS This sequence uses the same rules as A347594 except here all numbers must be unique. Up to 10^5 terms all terms are larger than the previous term; it is unknown if this holds for all terms as n->infinity. LINKS EXAMPLE a(1) = 2 as a(0)^2 + 1^2 = 1 + 1 = 2, and 2 + 2 = 4 = 2^2 is the next smallest square. a(2) = 8 as a(1)^2 + 2^2 = 4 + 4 = 8, and 8 + 8 = 16 = 4^2. Note that although 8 + 1 = 9 = 3^2, 1 cannot be chosen as a(0) = 1. a(3) = 27 as a(2)^2 + 3^2 = 64 + 9 = 73 and 73 + 27 = 100 = 10^2.  Note that although 73 + 8 = 81 = 9^2, 8 cannot be chosen as a(2) = 8. a(4) = 39 as a(3)^2 + 4^2 = 729 + 16 = 745, and 745 + 39 = 784 = 28^2 is the next smallest square.
