COMMENTS

Also, odd square-triangular numbers (or bisection of A001110 = {0, 1, 36, 1225, 41616, 1413721, 48024900, 1631432881, ...} = Numbers that are both triangular and square: a(n) = 34a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 2). - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 06 2007

Let be y^2=x*(2*x-1)=H_x (x>=1). The least both hexagonal and square number which is greater than y^2 is given by the relation (24*x+17*y-6)^2 = H_{17*x+12*y-4}. [From Richard Choulet, May 01 2009]

As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n -> Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = ( 1+ sqrt(2))^8 = 577 + 408 * sqrt(2). - Ant King Nov 08 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = A001110(2n-1). - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 06 2007

a(n+1)=577*a(n)+36+204*(8*a(n)^2+a(n))^0.5 for n>=1 (a(0)=1) [From Richard Choulet, May 01 2009]

a(n+2)=1154*a(n+1)-a(n)+72 for n>=0. [From Richard Choulet, May 01 2009]

From Ant King, Nov 07 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 1155*a(n-1) - 1155*a(n-2) + a(n-3).

a(n) = 1/32*((1 + sqrt(2))^(8*n - 4) + (1 - sqrt(2))^(8*n-4) - 2).

a(n) = floor(1/32*(1 + sqrt(2))^(8*n - 4)).

a(n) = 1/32*((tan(3*pi/8))^(8*n-4) + (tan(pi/8))^(8*n-4) - 2).

a(n) = floor(1/32*(tan(3*pi/8))^(8*n-4)).

GF: x*(1 + 70*x + x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 - 1154*x + x^2)).
