COMMENTS

Sequence arises from reading the line from 3, in the direction 3, 35,... in the square spiral whose vertices are the squares A000290. - Omar E. Pol, May 24 2008

log(sqrt(2)+1)/sqrt(2) = .62322524... = 2/3 - 2/35 + 2/99 - 2/195 + 2/323,... = (1 - 1/3) + (1/7 - 1/5) + (1/9 - 1/11) + (1/15 - 1/13) + (1/17 - 1/19) + (1/23 - 1/21) + ... - Gary W. Adamson, Mar 01 2009

Numbers k such that k+1 is a square and k+5 is divisible by 8. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2017

The concatenation of 8*A000217(n) and 99 is a member of the sequence. Example: for A000217(5) = 15, 8*15 = 120 and 12099 = a(27). In general, a(5*n+2) = 800*A000217(n) + 99. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 29 2017

FORMULA

Sum_{k>=0} 1/a(k) = Pi/8. - Benoit Cloitre, Aug 20 2002

G.f.: (3 + 26*x + 3*x^2)/(1 - x)^3. - Jaume Oliver Lafont, Mar 07 2009

a(n) = 32*n + a(n-1) for n>0, a(0)=3. - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 12 2010

a(n) = a(m) + 16*(n-m)*(n+m+1). The previous formula is obtained for m = n-1. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 29 2017
