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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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) = 0.62322524... = 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 term 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
