%N Even triangular numbers halved.

%C a(n) is also the exact set of integers k such that k + (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... + x) = 3*k, where x is sufficiently large. For example, a(15)=203 because 203 + (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... +28) = 609 and 609 = 3*203. - _Gil Broussard_, Sep 01 2008

%C a(n) is the set of all m such that 16*m+1 is a perfect square. - _Gary Detlefs_, Feb 21 2010

%C Also integers of the form Sum_{k=0..n} k/2. - _Arkadiusz Wesolowski_, Feb 07 2012

%C Numbers of the form h*(4*h + 1) for h = 0, -1, 1, -2, 2, -3, 3, ... - _Bruno Berselli_, Feb 26 2018

%F Sum_{n>=0} q^a(n) = (Prod_{n>0} (1-q^n))*(Sum_{n>=0} A035294(n)*q^n).

%F a(n) = n*(n + 1)/4 where n*(n + 1)/2 is even.

%F G.f.: x*(3 + 2*x + 3*x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 - x^2)^2).

%F From _Benoit Jubin_, Feb 05 2009: (Start)

%F a(n) = (2*n + 1)*floor((n + 1)/2).

%F a(2*k) = k*(4*k+1); a(2*k+1) = (k+1)*(4*k+3). (End)

%F a(2*n) = A007742(n), a(2*n-1) = A033991(n). - _Arkadiusz Wesolowski_, Jul 20 2012

%F a(n) = (4*n + 1 - (-1)^n)*(4*n + 3 - (-1)^n)/4^2. - _Peter Bala_, Jan 21 2019
