%C The old definition of this sequence was "Generalized polygonal numbers".

%C Column T(n,4) of A080853.

%C Sequence found by reading the line from 1, in the direction 1, 11,..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized pentagonal numbers A001318. - _Omar E. Pol_, Sep 08 2011

%H <a href="/index/Rec#order_03">Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients</a>, signature (3,-3,1).
