COMMENTS

Also as a(n)=(n/6)*(5*n^2+1), n>0: structured pentagonal diamond numbers (vertex structure 6) (cf. A081436 = alternate vertex; A000447 = structured diamonds; A100145 for more on structured numbers). - James A. Record (james.record(AT)gmail.com), Nov 07 2004

Number of atoms in decahedron with n shells, number = 5/6*(n^3) + 1/6*(n) (T. P. Martin, Shells of atoms, eq.(3)). - Brigitte Stepanov, Jul 02 2011

a(n+1) is the number of triples (w,x,y) having all terms in {0,...,n} and x+y>=w. - Clark Kimberling, Jun 14 2012

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} A215630(n,k) for n > 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 11 2012

a(n) - a(n-2) = A010001(n-1), for n>1. - K. G. Stier, Dec 21 2012

a(n) is also a figurate number representing a cube of side n with a vertex cut off by a tetrahedron of side n-1. As such, a(n) = A000578(n) - A000292(n-1), n > 0. - Jean M. Morales, Aug 11 2013

The sequence starting with 1 is the third partial sum of (1, 4, 5, 5, 5,...) and the binomial transform of (1, 6, 10, 5, 0, 0, 0,...). - Gary W. Adamson, Sep 27 2015
