FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+12*x)/(1-x)^3. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 04 2011

a(n) = 13*n+a(n-1)-12 (with a(0)=0) - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 06 2010

a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=15, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Feb 29 2012

a(13*a(n)+79*n+1) = a(13*a(n)+79*n) + a(13*n+1). - Vladimir Shevelev, Jan 24 2014
