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”).

FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n+1)*(5*n^2+5*n+1).

Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = -psi((5+sqrt(5))/10) - psi((5-sqrt(5))/10) - 2*gamma - 4*log(2), where psi is the digamma function and gamma is Euler's constant (A001620). - Amiram Eldar, Sep 12 2022

MAPLE

A005904:=(z+1)*(z**2+28*z+1)/(z-1)**4; [Conjectured by Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation.]

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := (2*n + 1) * (5*n^2 + 5*n + 1); Array[a, 30, 0] (* Amiram Eldar, Sep 12 2022 *)
