FORMULA

a(n) = (17*n^2 - 17*n + 2)/2.

a(n) = 17*n+a(n-1)-17 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010

G.f.: x*(1+15*x+x^2) / (1-x)^3. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 04 2011

a(0)=1, a(1)=18, a(2)=52, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Jun 05 2011

Narayana transform (A001263) of [1, 17, 0, 0, 0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 28 2011

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 171 because (17*5^2 - 17*5 + 2)/2 = (425 - 85 + 2)/2 = 342/2 = 171.
