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

EXAMPLE

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