COMMENTS

Apart from initial term(s), dimension of the space of weight 2n cusp forms for Gamma_0( 14 ).
A000466(n), A008586(n) and A053755(n) are Pythagorean triples.  Zak Seidov, Jan 16 2007
If X is an nset and Y and Z disjoint 2subsets of X then a(n3) is equal to the number of 3subsets of X intersecting both Y and Z.  Milan Janjic, Aug 26 2007
Number of n permutations (n>=1) of 5 objects u, v, z, x, y with repetition allowed, containing n1 u's. Example: if n=1 then n1 =zero (0) u, a(1)=4 because we have v, z, x, y. If n=2 then n1= one (1) u, a(2)=8 because we have vu, zu, xu, yu, uv, uz, ux, uy. A038231 formatted as a triangular array: diagonal :4,8,12,16,20,24,28,32... [Zerinvary Lajos, Aug 06 2008]
For n > 0: numbers having more even than odd divisors: A048272(a(n)) < 0. [Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 21 2012]
A214546(a(n)) < 0 for n > 0.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 20 2012
A090418(a(n)) = 0 for n > 0.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 06 2012
Terms are the differences of consecutive centered square numbers (A001844).  Mihir Mathur, Apr 02 2013
a(n)*Pi = Nonnegative zeros of the cycloid generated by a circle of radius 2 rolling along the positive xaxis from zero. [Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jul 01 2013]
Apart from the initial term, number of vertices of minimal path on a ndimensional cubic lattice (n>1) of side length 2, until a selfavoiding walk gets stuck. A004767 + 1.  Matthew Lehman, Dec 23 2013
