Consider the Diophantine equation $6x^2 = y^2(2y-1)(y-1)$. I am interested in finding all solutions to this such that $y$ is a positive integer -- or at the very least knowing whether there are infinitely many. Certainly there are some; the smallest being $(x,y) = (0,1)$, and then (less trivially) $(x,y) = (350,25)$. Generating more is possible.
This Diophantine equation arises in my research on certain determinants; I am not fluent enough in this area to see any immediate ways this question might be resolved. I had a look in Mordell, but could not see anything that could be shaped to give any direct answer (though perhaps I am wrong!).
