Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Sequence found by reading the line from 1, in the direction 1, 25,..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized octagonal numbers A001082. Semi-axis opposite to A135453 in the same spiral. - Omar E. Pol, Sep 16 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = 12*n^2 - 12*n + 1.

a(n) = 24*n+a(n-1)-24 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010

a(1)=1, a(2)=25, a(3)=73, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 17 2011

G.f.: x*(1+22*x+x^2)/(1-x)^3. - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 17 2011

Binomial transform of [1, 24, 24, 0, 0, 0,......] and Narayana transform (Cf. A001263) of [1, 24, 0, 0, 0...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 26 2011

From Amiram Eldar, Jun 21 2020: (Start)

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = Pi*tan(Pi/sqrt(6))/(4*sqrt(6)).

Sum_{n>=1} a(n)/n! = 13*e - 1.

Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^n * a(n)/n! = 13/e - 1. (End)

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 241 because 12*5^2 - 12*5 + 1 = 300 - 60 + 1 = 241.
