COMMENTS

Mean of the first four nonnegative powers of 2n+1, i.e., ((2n+1)^0 + (2n+1)^1 + (2n+1)^2 + (2n+1)^3)/4. E.g., a(2) = (1 + 3 + 9 + 27)/4 = 10.

Equatorial structured meta-diamond numbers, the n-th number from an equatorial structured n-gonal diamond number sequence. There are no 1- or 2-gonal diamonds, so 1 and (n+2) are used as the first and second terms since all the sequences begin as such. - James A. Record (james.record(AT)gmail.com), Nov 07 2004

Starting with offset 1 = row sums of triangle A143803. - Gary W. Adamson, Sep 01 2008

Form an array from the antidiagonals containing the terms in A002061 to give antidiagonals 1; 3,3; 7,4,7; 13,8,8,13; 21,14,9,14,21; and so on. The difference between the sum of the terms in n+1 X n+1 matrices and those in n X n matrices is a(n) for n>0. - J. M. Bergot, Jul 08 2013

Sum of the numbers from (n-1)^2 to n^2. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 08 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = A053698(2*n-1)/4.

a(n) = Sum_{j=1..n} ((n+j-1)^2-j^2+1). - Zerinvary Lajos, Sep 13 2006

From R. J. Mathar, Sep 02 2008: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + x)*(1 + 5*x)/(1 - x)^4.

a(n) = A002414(n-1) + A002414(n).

a(n+1) - a(n) = A136392(n+1). (End)

a(n) = (A000290(n) + A000290(n+1)) * (A000217(n+1) - A000217(n)). - J. M. Bergot, Nov 02 2012

a(n) = n * A001844(n-1). - Doug Bell, Aug 18 2015

a(n) = A000217(n^2) - A000217(n^2-2*n). - Bruno Berselli, Jun 26 2018
