COMMENTS

Sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 14,... and the parallel line from 1, in the direction 1, 39,..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 14-gonal numbers A195818. Also sequence found by reading the segment (0, 1) together with the line from 1, in the direction 1, 14,..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized pentagonal numbers A001318. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 18 2012

After 0, partial sums of A017533. [Bruno Berselli, Sep 11 2013]
