 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = (2+sqrt(3))^8 = 18817 + 10864*sqrt(3). - Ant King, Dec 13 2011 Dickson calls the terms "triangular, pentagonal and hexagonal" (all hexagonal numbers are also triangular). - Jonathan Sondow, May 06 2014 LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..219 L.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (37635,-37635,1). FORMULA a(n) = 37634*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 3136; g.f.: x*(1+3120*x+15*x^2)/((1-x)*(1-37634*x+x^2)). - Warut Roonguthai Jan 08 2001 a(n+1) = 18817*a(n)+1568+1358*(192*a(n)^2+32*a(n)+1)^0.5 - Richard Choulet, Sep 19 2007 a(n) = -(1/12)+(5/16)*sqrt(3)*{[18817+10864*sqrt(3)]^n-[18817-10864*sqrt(3)]^n}+(13/24)*[18817+10864*sqrt(3)]^n+[18817-10864*sqrt(3)]^n }, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 25 2008 From Ant King, Dec 13 2011: (Start) a(n) = 37635*a(n-1) - 37635*a(n-2) + a(n-3). a(n) = (1/48)*((2+sqrt(3))^(8n-5)+(2-sqrt(3))^(8n-5)-4). a(n) = floor((1/48)*(2+sqrt(3))^(8n-5)). a(n) = (1/48)*((tan(5*Pi/12))^(8n-5)+(tan(Pi/12))^(8n-5)-4). a(n) = floor((1/48)*(tan(5*pi/12))^(8n-5)).
