 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Binomial transform of [1, 14, 14, 0, 0, 0,...] and Narayana transform (A001263) of [1, 14, 0, 0, 0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 29 2011 Centered tetradecagonal numbers or centered tetrakaidecagonal numbers. - Omar E. Pol, Oct 03 2011 LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Centered Polygonal Numbers Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1). FORMULA a(n) = 7*n^2 - 7*n + 1. a(n) = 14*n+a(n-1)-14 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010 G.f.: -x*(1+12*x+x^2) / (x-1)^3. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 04 2011 a(n) = A163756(n-1) + 1. - Omar E. Pol, Oct 03 2011 a(n) = a(-n+1) = A193053(2n-2) + A193053(2n-3). - Bruno Berselli, Oct 21 2011 EXAMPLE a(5) = 141 because 7*5^2 - 7*5 + 1 = 175 - 35 + 1 = 141. a(5) = 71 because 71 = (7*5^2 - 7*5 + 2)/2 = (175 - 35 + 2)/2 = 142/2. From Bruno Berselli, Oct 27 2017: (Start) 1   =         -(1) + (2). 15  =       -(1+2) + (3+4+5+6). 43  =     -(1+2+3) + (4+5+6+7+8+9+10). 85  =   -(1+2+3+4) + (5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14). 141 = -(1+2+3+4+5) + (6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18).
