The series starts with

1. x

^{2}+ Dy

^{2}= F

2. (x-Dy)

^{2}+ D(x+y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

3. ((1-D)x-2Dy)

^{2}+ D(2x + (1-D)y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

^{2}

4. ((1-3D)x + (D

^{2}- 3D)y)

^{2}+ D((3-D)x + (1-3D)y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

^{3}

5. ((D

^{2}- 6D + 1)x + (4D

^{2}- 4D)y)

^{2}+ D((4-4D)x + (D

^{2}- 6D + 1)y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

^{4}

and that goes out to infinity. To get successive terms in the series you use the algebraic result that given:

u

^{2}+ Dv

^{2}= C

it must be true that

(u-Dv)

^{2}+ D(u+v)

^{2}= C(D+1).

And where whenever the exponent of (D+1) is even, you can have a case where you just have a multiple of x and y, so you can solve for D, which defines possible values for F in terms of x or y.

For instance with

((1-D)x-2Dy)

^{2}+ D(2x + (1-D)y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

^{2}

I have six possibilities:

(1-D)x-2Dy = +/-(D+1)x or +/-(D+1)y

and

2x + (1-D)y = +/-(D+1)y or +/-(D+1)x

but I will only work through four.

Considering the first gives:

(1-D)x-2Dy = (D+1)x and 2x + (1-D)y = (D+1)y, so

x = -y, from the first and x = Dy, so D=-1. Which gives F=0.

The second gives

(1-D)x-2Dy = -(D+1)x, so x = y,

and 2x + (1-D)y = -(D+1)y, so x = -y, so x=y=0.

The third and fourth also give D=-1.

The next case where D can be set occurs with

((D

^{2}- 6D + 1)x + (4D

^{2}- 4D)y)

^{2}+ D((4-4D)x + (D

^{2}- 6D + 1)y)

^{2}= F(D+1)

^{4}

which gives again six possibles:

(D

^{2}- 6D + 1)x + (4D

^{2}- 4D)y = +/-(D+1)

^{2}x or +/-(D+1)

^{2}y

and

(4-4D)x + (D

^{2}- 6D + 1)y = +/-(D+1)

^{2}y or +/-(D+1)

^{2}x

but I will only show one:

(D

^{2}- 6D + 1)x + (4D

^{2}- 4D)y = (D+1)

^{2}x, so 2x = (D - 1)y

and

(4-4D)x + (D

^{2}- 6D + 1)y = (D+1)

^{2}y, so (1-D)x = 2Dy,

which solves as D

^{2}+ 2D + 1 = 0, so D=-1 again.

D=-1 will always be one of the solutions.

My theory is that other integers will emerge and that you will get all possible integer values for D somewhere in the supermap, and with other values you can get solutions for F, relative to x and y.

I think though mapping the number theoretic structure is best done by computer.
