COMMENTS

From Boris Putievskiy, Mar 14 2013: (Start)

a(n) is a pairing function: a function that reversibly maps Z^{+} x Z^{+} onto Z^{+}, where Z^{+} is the set of integer positive numbers.

Layer is pair of sides of square from T(1,n) to T(n,n) and  from T(n,n) to T(n,1). This sequence is A188568 as table read  by boustrophedonic ("ox-plowing") method - layer clockwise, layer counterclockwise and so. The same table A188568 read layer by layer clockwise is A194280. (End)

FORMULA

a(n) = (i+j-1)*(i+j-2)/2+i, where i=min(t; t^2-n+1), j=min(t; n-(t-1)^2), t=floor(sqrt(n-1))+1. - Boris Putievskiy, Dec 24 2012

EXAMPLE

From Boris Putievskiy, Mar 14 2013: (Start)

The start of the sequence as table:

1....2...6...7..15..16..28...

3....5...9..12..20..23..35...

4....8..13..18..26..31..43...

10..14..19..25..33..40..52...

11..17..24..32..41..50..62...

21..27..34..42..51..61..73...

22..30..39..49..60..72..85...

. . .

The start of the sequence as triangular array read by rows:

1;

3,5,2;

6,9,13,8,4;

10,14,19,25,18,12,7;

15,20,26,33,41,32,24,17,11;

21,27,34,42,51,61,50,40,31,23,16;

28,35,43,52,62,73,85,72,60,49,39,30,22;

. . .

Row number r contains 2*r-1 numbers. (End)
