COMMENTS

a(n) also can represented as n concentric squares (see example). - Omar E. Pol, Aug 21 2011

Sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 4, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the triangular numbers A000217. - Omar E. Pol, Sep 03 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = A067239(n)/2, for n>0.

Sum_{n>0} 1/a(n) = log(2)/2.

a(n) = A000384(n)*4. - Omar E. Pol, Dec 11 2008

a(n) = 16*n + a(n-1) - 12 (with a(0)=0). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010

G.f.: 4*x*(1 + 3*x)/(1 - 3*x + 3*x^2 - x^3). - Colin Barker, Jan 04 2012

E.g.f.: 4*x*(2*x + 1)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 14 2017

a(n) = A046092(2n-1), for n > 0. - Bruce J. Nicholson, Sep 04 2017
