Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

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)).
