COMMENTS

Equals binomial transform of [1, 18, 18, 0, 0, 0,...]. Example: a(3) = 55 = (1, 2, 1) dot (1, 18, 18) = (1 + 36 + 18). - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 24 2010

Narayana transform (A001263) of [1, 18, 0, 0, 0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 28 2011

Index entries for sequences related to centered polygonal numbers

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 9*n^2 - 9*n + 1.

a(n) = 18*n+a(n-1)-18 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010

G.f.: ( x*(1+16*x+x^2) ) / ( (1-x)^3 ). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 04 2011

a(1)=1, a(2)=19, a(3)=55, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Jan 20 2014

EXAMPLE

a(5)= 181 because 9*5^2 - 9*5 + 1 = 225 - 45 + 1 = 181.
