Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A033989 Write 0,1,2,... in a clockwise spiral on a square lattice, writing each digit at a separate lattice point, starting with 0 at the origin and 1 at x=0, y=-1; sequence gives the numbers on the negative x-axis. 16

%e We begin with the 0 and wrap the numbers 1 2 3 4 ... around it. Then the sequence is obtained by reading leftwards, starting from the initial 0. - _Andrew Woods_, May 20 2012
