FORMULA

a(n) = 4*n*(3*n-1)/2 = 6*n^2 - 2*n = 4*A000326(n). - Omar E. Pol, Dec 11 2008

a(n) = 2*A049450(n). - Omar E. Pol, Dec 13 2008

a(n) = 12*n+a(n-1)-8 for n>0, a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 05 2010

a(n) = A014642(n)/2. - Omar E. Pol, Aug 19 2011

G.f.: x*(4+8*x)/(1-3*x+3*x^2-x^3). - Colin Barker, Jan 06 2012

a(n) = A191967(2*n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 07 2012

a(n) = A181617(n+1) - A181617(n). - J. M. Bergot, Jun 28 2013

a(n) = (A174371(n) - 1)/6. - Miquel Cerda, Jul 28 2016

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 28 2016: (Start)

E.g.f.: 2*x*(2 + 3*x)*exp(x).

a(n+1) = Sum_{k=0..n} A017569(k).

Sum_{i>0} 1/a(i) = (9*log(3) - sqrt(3)*Pi)/12 = 0.3705093754425278... (End)
