COMMENTS

Sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 23, ..., and the parallel line from 1, in the direction 1, 66, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 23-gonal numbers. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 18 2012

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+20*x)/(1-x)^3. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 04 2011

a(n) = 21*n + a(n-1) - 20 with n > 0, a(0) = 0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 06 2010

a(n) = A226491(n) - n. - Bruno Berselli, Jun 11 2013

a(21*a(n)+211*n+1) = a(21*a(n)+211*n) + a(21*n+1). - Vladimir Shevelev, Jan 24 2014
